In Reply to: 19" wheel--will 5series wheels fit ? posted by crazy canuck on February 16, 1999 at 09:39:15:
As far as I know, even though the wheel bolt pattern for the E46 and the E39 are the same, the offsets are different. The 5 series has a lower offset. This means the wheels would stick out too much, probably beyond the wheel arches and would rub every time you drive over a bump or dip.
