Wheel Fitment Help!!!

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None

Hello! Considering putting a set of gorgeous OEM M5 Style 343 rims on my 2013 528 xdrive. Anybody able to confirm for me that these will work, without issue from a fitment perspective (eg. offsets, etc.)? They would be running the stock Michelin PSS tires that are 255 in the front, 285 in the back.

Also, are the TPMS on a Canadian spec. car located in the wheels/tires or on the car itself next to the ABS sensors. Iím a bit of a wheel dimwit and canít seem to get any kind of straight answer from 2 different parts managers at BMW. Thanks.

The fronts may be a problem if the offset is too aggressive as the M5 has flared fender arches but the rear is identical across all f10's I believe so the rear should be a sure fit. These are 19" correct?

What are the offsets? Without providing the offsets its just a guess, they are the key here.

Hi. Thanks. Just received this from another member. Sounds like it may be a no-go if 528's are different than 535/550's

"This is the message that was sent:
***************
Given you have a 528xi with 350M style wheel, the stock is f: 18 * 8 et 30 and r: 18 * 9 et 44.

Based on straight calculation using 20" 343M wheels spec. being f: 20 * 9 et 34 and r: 20 * 10 et 34

Result:
F: 17mm less clearance from strut/suspension and the wheel will extend by 9mm.
Opinion - definitely no go because your tire will rub against the strut, if not rubbing, certainly it's way too close to it. No aftermarket parts can correct this. I would not recommend it.


R: 3mm less clearance from strut/suspension and the wheel will extend by 23mm.
Opinion - if travel on rough road, you are at the border line of the tire hitting the fender. There are bloggers have done and claimed without issue but I would not recommend it.

Please note your 528 has a slight variation wheel than the 535 & 550 to begin with."




Anybody have additional thoughts?
