In Reply to: Didn't you just sell a set of these rims???? posted by Reseller on November 17, 1999 at 11:09:11:

Yes, I did just sell a set. It's the dumbest thing, I replaced them with identical-looking 850CSi rims that are 9" wide at the rear so I can mount 255/40-17 tires. What I didn't realize when I bought the rims was that the front ones (8" wide) have a 10mm offset, not 20mm like the M5. I can use them but that limits front tire size to 235/45-17 and I'd still get a slight amount of inside wheel contact with the steering wheel at full lock. DOH!!! So I have one spare 20mm offset rim already, and getting another one would eliminate the problem and let me mount 245s in front.
