Anyone mounted original M5 343M 20" rims on an F10/F11

From what I've read, the original 20" M5 343M rims (Front 9Jx20 ET34 and Rear 10Jx20 ET34) should be able to fit onto the F10 / F11 without rubbing, but was wondering if anyone has actually mounted these on your car and know for sure?

Understand that for the rears in particular, would be advisable to go with PSS tyres (255/35/20 front and 285/30/20 rear) or more conservatively use a 275/30/20 rear tyre?

Thanks

Yes, somebody did it already. I think 275/30/20 would be safe but not sure on the 285 setup.

The dealer would be the only place I can think of to get OEM M5 wheels but they will run you over $4000 for a set of 20's.

There's reps but I can only find 19's

I think you don't need to put spacers since the OEM offset for the m5 wheels are on the low side.

Just based on those spec. - the front has no issue at all. The rear is going to be pretty close border line clearing without rubbing. If you intend to lower the suspension later, then for sure, it will rub against the fender.

How could then ACS sell there wheel kit:
FA: 9,0 x 20" offset 22 with 255/35 R 20
RA: 10,0 x 20" offset 33 with 285/30 R 20

seems like this is very close in the rear as the M5 wheel with ET34.
only 1mm different.

The ACS setup

Front: +5mm from strut/+17mm outward extension
Rear: -2mm from strut/+24mm outward extension

Therefore, I think for rear, that +24mm outward extension is the highest limit that you can go with. Btw, ACS did lowered the car but their springs only lowered about 1 inch without any fender rolling. However, if you are thinking of lowering beyond that reference, there is a good chance it will rub.

I've read in other threads that it's best to have 245 in front and 285 at rear if you have xdrive. So it's same diameter. But i'm not sure how important this is.
I wonder if this F11 is lowered..?

M6 wheels for 535 2012

Hello Guys,

I have a deal to buy Front : 255/40/19 Rear 285/35/19 wheel and tire set from M6. Wanted to know if any of you have tried to fit 2012 535 Xdrive.

I see tire width as 255 and 285 for M6 whereas most of the staggered I saw for 535 was 245 and 275.

Please let me know your thoughts and experience or suggestions.

Thanks in advance
