Hey guys, will I be able to run 19x9.5 E60 wheels ET19 on my E39 on all 4 corners? I do understand that the center bore is not the same, but aside from that, would the offset be fine? And if I deceided to get spacers to match the center bore instead of boring the rims out, would 5mm or 10mm spacers be the best choice? I m looking to run 225/40/19 front vs 255/35/19 rear tires and the car is lowered on h&r springs
Thanks for all the help

Why such small tires? Bore the wheels instead of spacers....and use real tires

no you dont need spacers. infact iff you run spacers the wheels will stick out.
5mm would be ok though, but you still need a centerbore
like mattmartindrift said, get them bored out and they will fit like they should.
et19 should be ok normally..e39 value is et20-22.

no spacers needed when the bore is corrected.

sure, but they aren't needed. especially with how small of a tire you're planning on running.

Matt, what size would you recommend? 245/35/19 and 275/30/19? I don’t want to stretch the tires but I also don’t want to rub - thanks for all your help
