M Parallel Wheels

3 posts in this topic

I tried some rear 18" paras on my E39 M5 today only to find that they rubbed on the inner arch. The wheel is stamped 36112229731 et20 & have 275x35x18 tyres fitted.

 

Are the tyres too wide or is the offset wrong?

 

Have not tried the fronts yet but these are stamped 36112229730 et15 & have 245x40x18 tyres fitted.

 

I was led to believe that they would fit OK so not sure what to do now.

i believe genuine E39 18" M Paras should be 235/40/ZR18 (front) and 265/35/ZR18 (rear)

Thanks Nexus,

 

I have since found out that mine are E38 wheels (8j & 9.5J) & as such have a different offset to standard E39 wheels.

 

I have some spacers on order (20mm for the back & 15mm for the front), so will give these a go when they arrive.
