On my way to pick up 351m wheels

Hi Guys,
Iím about to pick up a set of 351M wheels and tires. I need help with the following two quick questions:
  1. The set is non-staggered, and the tires are 245/40 R19 Goodyear Eagle LS. Will they work on my 2013 528i xDrive w/o any problems?
  2. Is $2,000 reasonable for a new set?

Much appreciated!

They will work just fine on your car, I run that setup in the winter on my 528 xdrive. Price is slightly high but if they're brand new never mounted then it's not too too bad. Good luck!

Thanks Dan! What would you consider is the fair price for a like new set? I doubt they're brand new.

Without TPMS, I would say $1700 is fair for a basically new set.

Thanks guys for your input! I hear terms like offset and spacer being thrown around. Do I need to worry about them for this setup? I would do the research but don't have time as I'm picking up the set now.

You don't need any spacers to make them work. You may however wish to add them down the road for a more aggressive look. Especially if you plan on lowering. Let us know what happens

Met with the seller last night who needs sometime to think about the offer. Quick question, what kind of mileage/longivity can you get out of these 19" tires? They're Goodyear Eagle LS2 all-season.

Depends how you drive really. Look up the tire and see what the norm is. Everyone is different

While I love the look of 351m and not sure this is important to you but those are fairly heavy tires. In combination with the fairly heavy 351m rims result in a fairly leisurely ride. Total weight in each corner is 62lbs according to my scale.
IMHO.

I agree 100%. Although I hate the look of the stock 327 wheel on my car, the ride quality is exceptional.

For reference, the 343m M5 rims with Michelin PSS weigh about 50/53 lbs front/rear.

I have a set of 351M that are as new with Goodyear LS2 tires and TPMS already mounted that I would ship to you for free for $2000. No scratches whatsoever.
