Anyone tried putting F10 wheels on E60?

Just wondering if I should get a set of the following for E60 550i.

Front wheels are 19x8.5 et33 offset
Rear wheels are 19x9 et44 offset
Tire sizes are 245/40R19 front and 275/35R19 rear

Thanks

You'll get rubbing cause it'll push the wheel outside by about 15mm to 18mm, Not sure if you can even roll tyhe fender and get away with it (especially when you have full number of passengers).

I though positive offset will push the tires inward not the other way around, am I wrong?

Those wheel specs indicate that those wheels may fit on a X-Drive 5-series. However, it would require a physical check to be sure. The X-Drive uses a 43mm offset. However, those tires definitely are too big in circumference.

My bad, yep the F10 wheels on E60 will push the wheels inward by 15mm in the front and 18mm in the rear (also less clearance in the suspension side since they are the same width). So OP will likely get rubbing inside but way enough clearance on the fender side though looks ugly from wheel well gap.

XI rears can handle offsets from 33 to 53 without rubbing. Big brake kits may not fit. Can you try before you buy?

OP has E60 550i (so not an Xi car) and my calculation based of going from E60 19" sport wheels which are 9"/18mm and 9.5"/32mm to F10 wheels (listed by OP in terms of spec).
Big brake kit shouldn't be a problem in 19" setup.

I talked to the seller today and will bring my car in some time and see how it fits. Definitely will need spacers for sure.

If you get spacers, you'll need longer bolts. You'll also want to get high quality spacers or your wheels won't track straight.

I'm thinking ECS spacers if I do go this route. Anyone has suggestions on spacers? I heard about H&R and Also Turner Motorsport also.
