Need a fitment expert

Just created my account a few minutes ago and I am a complete newb to BMW and this forum. Sorry if these are dumb questions. But I am clueless and need some help...

Looking at buying a used set of 20' Ferrada Fr2 wheels and tires for my 2011 535i

continental all season tires 255/35R20
Wheels: 20/8.5 and 20/9.5
5x 120
Slight concave
Comes with TPMS

Will these fit correctly?
And will i have any issues down the road with putting a wheel/tire combo like this on?
Will it throw off any of the computers or wear the components faster?
Guy wants 1,150 with 90% tread left on the rubber. Rims are in great condition. I love the look, but is this a good buy?

I put larger wheels on a AWD infiniti and would crush wheel bearings. Was told that it was my fault for putting over sized wheels on and "I was lucky that the bearings were the only problem I had."


Thanks for any help!

Welcome! In order to really dial in fitment Offset is the name of the game. It determines how much concavity as well as exact fitment. Do you know the offset for these wheels?

Not quite the name of the game but it is one of the factors.
The information you need is:
Diameter
Width
Hole Pattern
Center Bore Size
Offset

Also you mention two widths but only one tire size.

I said offset was the name of the game because that's the only thing he hasn't told us, and it seems to be a normal thing of people wanting to be dialed in fitment wise but have no idea what an offset is.

Thanks for the follow up everyone!
They came off of a M5 previously. One would assume they would bolt right on...
I am trying to get some more information from the seller regarding those specifics.
Will share it when I get an answer.
Thank you people!

I mounted them. There is a vibration at 45 mph and higher. Maybe I need to get them balanced? And standing behind the car you can see the very slight camber. Will this wear on my car harder than normal?

Anytime you mount a tire to a rim it should be balanced.
As for normal wear, no not any harder on the car but the tire yes.

I should say the tires were mounted to the wheels when I bought them. They have weights on them already.

Personally I would have them balanced anyway.
Right now you don't know how old that balance is, if it's lost any weights, etc.
