Very interested in purchasing a set of these wheels. I've emailed a few vendors with no help as far as fittment goes, can you believe that!

-I'm interested, for my e39 m5 a set of these wheels in the square 19x9.5 set.
-I do NOT want to have to do really any, if possible, fender mods to make these fit. ( I own a fender roller, but my M5 has nice clean paint I do not want to risk screwing with in any way)
-what size tires are reccommended, fr + rr?
-spacers? (stock brakes, BC coils) I am to be lowered on BC coilovers.

I'd appreciate any help on the matter, love how they look on the e39 I just dont want to run a staggered set. I prefer concave on all 4 corners. If you have pics, post em up!

thanks!

you can go with 10.5 rears too.

make sure you get the centers bored to 74.1

mattmartindrift ran spacers on his setup and 245/275
i believe he had +12 in front and +22 in rear. IIRC

Is the only reason you want to run square bc you feel staggered is not concave?

I recommend their 19x9.5f 19x10.5r. No spacers needed. "el cabron" runs this, also, do a search of my "I love alpine white" thread. The first post is also the staggered setup I recommended. They do not offer a squared setup anyways.

I saw the alpine car with 10.5's and the rear fenders are mangled. They've been rolled/pulled out a ton and I dont want to go that route. I believe the 9.5's should fit fine stock body, just wondering on tire size/spacers/etc. Brecus sells them for the e39, do I really need to have them re-bored? I didnt think I had to... thanks!

They do not have a square setup. That car has mangled fenders bc he runs a large spacer at his preference. As I said, el cabron and matt both run this setup with no spacer, or fender mods. You must get them rebored.

When I say they, varrstoen does not make squared setups.

You can run stock widths, or one size up which is what I recommended to el cabron who runs 255/35/19f, 285/30/19r, again, no fender roll or spacers.

E39 M5 Varrstoen 6 Spoke Wheels - Brecus Motorsport

^^^they do offer a 19x9.5 x4 (square) option, that is why I asked... (and regardless, whats it matter if they didnt offer it or not. THey offer 9.5's for the rear so I could buy 4 if I pleased to)

I like the concave look on all 4's, thats why I do NOT want to go staggered with the skinnier flat faced ones

I'll do some more searching in that alpine thread then. I live in the Boston area, and was leaning Against the 10.5 rears as I do not want to run a really stretched tire as the roads here suck!

Id send aaron a PM just to verify. But if you are set on the 9.5, run a 275/30/19 tire. That would look great. BTW thats my car on Brecus ;)

I checked out the AW thread... I'd like to see Matts car if you dont mind sharing some pics/info to help out a fellow M5boarder...

I was just very weary of an uber stretched tire needed ont he 10.5's to clear stock body, I'm curious if they do need stretched or not?

Thanks!

I saw them on Matts car after some research. Hmnn... I'm going to question them on the 9.5's, the 10.5 rears looks nice but the tire looks a tad bit too "rubber band" for me, we'll have to see. I run a set of 19" OZ ultraleggeras on my S4 and the roads havent been nice to them, and the they run a decently meaty tire compared to most.

Thanks for all the help, I just traded my Alpine e36 m3 I built, 550whp for the m5 and I need more mods! haha

I think matt runs 265 rears iirc. Elcabron above runs 285, huge difference, no rubber band.

elcabrons car looks perfect! no spacers/correct bore too?!

I know he had rolled fenders... ahh I just rolled my s4's with a heatgun and lots of patience only to crack paint badly. I dont want to hurt the M5 in such a way... hmnnnn!

Correct bore no spacers.

Was your s4 ever resprayed? Mine has and it didnt crack. I know you already know, but more heat is good for fender rolling :)

I believe the fenders were original paint, I heated the **** out of them with not much luck. Maybe I dont have enough patience, idk.

Heres a couple snaps of the e36 I built and traded for a basically stock jet back 01 m5... I dont regret it! (s4 can be my rocketship now)





Made 550whp at 18.5 psi on 93.

So far the m5 has gotten a new OEM clutch, deleted the rear resonator/mufflers in favor of 3" straight piping to new 3" inlet 3" dual outlet cans, ZHP knob 545i SSK and fresh trans/diff fluids with RP... next up is Powerchip, BC coils, and these wheels and she'll be good! I love the m5!
