Hey guys I'm looking to maybe get an M5. I have a e46 M3 currently. Was wondering if my Meisters would fit if I got a M5. They are 19x9.5+36 235/35/19 19x11 +17 275/30/19

You can make them fit.

1. Bore out center bore from 72.4 to 74.1mm (or get appropriate centering rings if available for Meisters).
2. Fronts need a 20-25mm hubcentric 74.1mm spacer. Rear offsets are OK. You may need a 5mm spacer if it does not clear the strut housing. 275 tires on a 11" wheel is a stretch so fender should be fine. Roll if necessary.

Thanks guys. So I could go more aggressive on the front and rear offsets?
You want to aim for 15mm front and 25mm rear, or less. Anything more and it will not clear your suspension and/or brakes.

I've got 10" wheels +22mm in the back and its a little snug. You may have trouble with 11" +17mm. Although I have 295's, so your tire size will help.

the original owner of my M5 put 19" E46 M3 wheels on... there is very minimal rub in the front when the wheel's at full turn, but otherwise, they seem to fit.

Got any pics? Sounds like that would be a sweet combo!

thanks... it's a good look, but I'm working on going back to OEM. before that happens, hopefully, I'll get around to getting my camera working, and get some pics up.

If you're interested in doing a wheel exchange when the time comes, let me know, I may be interested. My OEMs are in near perfect condition; I think only 1 has a blemish, and it's very small!

I'm not 100% sure, but I think they're "replica" rims. one of them is cracked, too. it's either the poor quality, or the potholes around here, or maybe both. that's the reason I'm going back to OEM. if you find a new set of real M3 wheels and want to sell your OEMs, keep me in mind. I don't want to risk ripping you off on a trade, though.
