20" alpina classic wheels in question are
9*20 et 20
10*20 et 32

bmw spec is 9x20 and 10x20, both at ET24 if OEM wheels. (some even 25 at 10)

meaning frontwheel will sit 4mm further out than stock, which really shouldn't be much of a problem, rear wheel wil sit 7-8mm to far in, minimum for a proper hubcentric spacer is 10mm, so this should sit 2mm further out than stock, again not a problem I think.

after 10 mins of google I find that both E38 and E65 are 72.56mm centerbore, and my E39 is the "odd" bmw with a larger bore.

I like them because they are simple and easy to clean. Still have to keep them waxed though. I may have to check out some dustless brake pads.

Awesomeee! Some info (Price/Mileage) Pls?
And can we get a close-up on the iced out emblems...? They look nice...
For suspension..most people on here got their rides lowered with H&R springs. Good luck.
