X5 wheels on an E38?

Recommended Posts

Anyone done this?

 

Offsets look to be all over the place,  so I reckon spacers needed, rolling-radius of tyres is a bit out (by about 1/2" or so?).

 

Anyone know what the absolute maximum width for the rear tyre would be?  

 

Wondering about these... Alpina :lol:

Selling the almost immac M Parras I have could just about fund those....

 Good grief, how bling are you going? Have you been having nights out in Croydon again?

TBH., I reckon it's a non-runner, not with 325 width tyres on the back!   (Widest I can find that anyone has fitted is 295).

 

The other issue would be the massive offset at the front (ET50).  30mm spacers?

 

Just a mad, random idea...

I think 21" would fit -

 

these are 21" apparently:

BMW did fit 20" Style 32's to the E65.

 

20" look big enough on the E38:
