If you have the stock brake calipers on the front the rim will contact the brake pad retainer spring. You can either remove the spring or use a 5 mm spacer. If you remove the spring the pads rattle. If you use a 5 mm spacer you might lose the hub centricity. The backs fit fine. They look great. I mounted 215/40/17 tires as this size is very close to the stock diameter. Also use only the e34 m5 rims as the 850CSI ones are a different offset. Good luck.
