looking for a spare for my e39 m5.. just as a safety for roadtrips.. i took off the runflats and replaced them with regular tires..

doesnt matter if its a front or rear m5 wheel, but i prefer a front..18 by (8.5) width..


please if anyone has one that they no longer need ill take it off of their hands. i dont care how it looks it can be chipped paint painted whatever as long as its straight and would be usable if necessary..

I don't think the rear will fit on the front. To wide, rubs when turning. Anybody here know for sure?
Rear wheel definitely fits on front though you need 3mm spacer and longer bolts or a set of studs. Lots of us run rear wheels at all corners to eliminate some of the car's inherent understeer.

For a spare, also consider a proper space-saver spare available from Board-sponsor Bimmerzone. Fits over M5 OE brakes and BBK (Stoptech/Brembo have been tested). See it here and give Vincent a call

OE front also does the trick for less $ but takes up the majority of the trunk.
