I bought a set of 20" Polished Diamond Graphite Maya STM wheels.

The tires on the back is gonna be 295 and front is gonna be 255

I gotta take the rim to this place called Wheel Concepts to have them machine the center hub bigger cause these wheels wont fit the E39 as is.

Im pretty excited about it, will post finish pics later

I dont know much about the specs of the wheels. My friend who is an expert in wheels and tires got these for me. He said everything will fit without rubbing and this will be the maximum set up for the E39. As mentioned before, the only that will need to be modified is the center hubs. I dropped the wheels off today at the Wheels machine shop already. Should have them on the the car by the weekend or early next week.

i actually had those wheels back in the summer. They nice but i bought them from a 3 series used so i had to get them bored out and it didnt look too great, i had to get spacers to make them loko good. Either way i hit a curb at about 5-8mph driftings but hardly and botht he right wheels just completely got demolished. Weekest wheels i have every owned, but they look very nice if they sit well.

Finesta,

Did you remember the offset of the wheel and what size of spacers you used?

you bought the ones off the 3 series BMW so you needed the spacers because the off set is different. These wheels I bought came off a E60 BMW so all the specs are perfect for the E39 except for the center hub size.

The offset i dont remeber... but it was straigh of a 2003 3 series... so whatever offset that car has thats what i had.

Spacers, well i have 3mm in front and 5 in back... but if i still had them i wouldget like 25mm in front and 35mm in back...

btw. if you dont mind me asking how much are you paying?

Ye your right... yours should be a much better fit than mine... except you probably have to get the center bored out

I got them for $850 with tires Bridgestone Potenza 80% tread on the front and 60% tread in the back. 295 tires in the back and 255 tires in the front. The rims are in near perfect condition.

You got a very good deal. Enjoy... I though i had a good deal i paid 1300... After i cracked 2 wheels i figured ill replace them with new ones, until the cheapest quote per rim i got was $800 a piece...
