ECS, Turner and Tischer all had them in stock, but only the 18 x 9's, and it appears that they would fit the M5 ok, but Tischer would not guarantee as they can only guarantee an OE setup according to the catalogue.

I went outside and measured clearance to front strut and fender and think I will be OK with a few mm to spare close to the strut. If I am not ok, I can fix this with a small spacer, no problem. Found a website that calculates fitment and going from the stock Style 65 18 x 8 front ET 22 to the Style 32 18 x 9 ET24, I'd be getting the following results:

* Wheel will be 17mm closer to strut, tire will be 14mm closer
* Wheel will be 9mm closer to the fender, tire will be 6mm closer to fender

Order placed, going to take some time as they are coming directly from Germany. Approx $1200 shipped, out the door to my home, Excited!!!

It's a hard choice between Style 5, 32, 37, and 65. They're all such great designs.

Looking forward to seeing your car on 32's once they arrive.

The stock rear 9.5's with ET of 22 (from memory) use a 3mm spacer to get a net of 19mm when used on the front. With about 6mm less on both sides of the centerline, (1/2 half inch divided by 2 or about 6 1/4 mm) the 9 inch should fit even with the higher offset. If not, you can always add a 3mm spacer.

Nice deal on a brand new set of 4!! Make sure to post up some pics when installed.

Jerry

Looks great! Are you going to put any kind of coating on them (e.g. ceramic) to repel brake dust?

^^^dayyyyummm nice polish!!!

I put the 32’s on and somehow no rubbing up front! I will roll for a week and see how it goes..






Mad gap in the front but I think I’m done with the low life so she will stay like this for now. Car looks more “classy” on the 32’s and much more “sporty” on the 65’s, kinda changes up the look of the car entirely, but I love it. Car feels more planted with the 9’s up front now, so solid and such a perfect roll...

You are killing me! Now I am searching around for wheels. Where did you purchase the wheels? Looks like ECS is $334 each, plus they beat me up for 10% sales tax. So $1469 for me.
