Minimum offset for 08 528xi?

I know the M5 wheels (style 166) with a 20 offset won't fit my 08 528xi and that my current wheels (style 138) have a 43 offset.

Does anyone know for sure what the minimum offset required is for an E60 xi without the use of spacers?

Also, PM me if you've used any stock BMW wheels on your E60 xi, I'm trying to get ideas (18s and up only please).

Thanks

talking about offsets without wheel width is pointless.

I know what you mean, not necessarily. I know that regardless of the width a 20 offset won't fit. And it's rare to find a quality wheel that's 19" and only 7" wide. So 19x9 with 32 offset may not fit, true, but 19x8 may...

punch in the combinations into the above website and you can get the clearances on each side of the wheel.

Punch in the ones that will not work and then the OEM info and you can get a range of what will work.
