Will the after market wheels from e39 fit e60?

I have these wheels from my old car 19x8 (15+ offset) front and 19 x 9.5 (20+ offset) rear. Do anyone know if these will fit on the e60's? I don't know much about bolt patterns and offset.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, they will fit. The blot pattern is 5X120, and as long as the E60 that you are putting the wheels on is also a rear wheel drive model, you'll be fine.

Not quite, you'll need centering ring, E39 has 74.1mm CB(center bore) while E60 is 72.5mm CB. the offsets on those wheels will be fine for E60 as long you have correct size tires.

I wouldn't even attempt that due to the center bore issue. Not advisable. Sell them to another e39 owner.

Hub rings will be necessary for them to properly seat on the hub. HERE you will find hub rings which take the center bore of a wheel from an E39 to match the center bore of an E60.

Mush Thanks for all the information and tips. Great info here. I think the wheels would still give the e60 the classy look. I just need to lower to have a more aggressive look.
