Hello, was looking for winter tires for my E39 and found a set of 17x8.5 Style 23 wheels, the bolt pattern and size match up fine to clear the M5s brakes but the offset is +41, was wondering if that would fit or not considering the Style 65s are +20/+22 offset.

20mm spacer will fix your offset issue.

Aren't those E36 M-contours? You'll run into the hub-size issue, but since you need spacers there are ones made specifically made for this (non-e39 to e39 fitment).

I've used this style in a replica rim for snows but don't know the brand or stats. Not too many 17 inchers fit. Style 66 is the usual/official recommendation. Unfortunately my favorite, 42 will not.

Do many members drive in the winter weather?
