Default 34mm offset on e60?

Hi there,

I'm looking to prep an e60 for sale. It currently has 16" winter wheels but I'd like to get 17" wheels that are OEM bmw -- to spruce the car up a bit...

Finding 5 series 5x120 wheels with the proper offset (20mm) is proving tough or costly.

There are plenty of 34mm offset BMW wheels that are period correct that I'm interested in.

Will these wheels fit without spacers on the E60? Will it look stupidly sunken into the wheel wells?

Any pictures?

Thanks in advance,

JP

If you want to go with OE rims, then go here.

Yeah I know the stock wheels are et 20 -- but do et 34 rims fit without issue? Will it look stupid?

Other than the driveline, how is the xi different? hubs? brake size? etc...

et34 wheels are more plentiful on craigslist, and are more affordable -- just want to make sure they're compatible with the e60
