Talking looking to trade my 05 530 rims 6762001

I'm new to this but looking to see if I can find someone who'd want to trade rims that are in equal condition as mine. They are 17inch 7.5 6762001 o5 530 bmw rims. They don't have to have tires on them as mine don't. I bought them off someone on Craigslist for $400 they fit my 98 528i but the center hub I'm assuming that center part that supports the rim is a little bit wider then the hole in the 05 530 rims I bought but the lug wholes are exact at 5 by 120. If you have a nice set of rims that are BMW and will fit my 98 528i and want to trade let me know I can text pics if interested. They are practically new not a scuff or scratch on them and I have 3 of the original BMW boxes that they came in. My names Johnny my number is 6 four 6 three three four 93 five three.

E39s have *very* specific (and unique) wheel fitment requirements. I`m thinking your wheels possibly might not meet these requirements.

Post the offset numbers (aka/"is" or "et", followed by a 2-digit number), and the hub centerbore size (you`ll need a metric ruler for that measurement), and we can determine what they`ll fit from those specs.

There is no such thing as "One size fits all" on BMWs....

I would just keep the rims and have them put on but do I need a spacer? Or can that center rim support be removed? Its barely fitting throught the rims center bore by maybe a quarter of an inch. I think if I shaved around it the rims would slide right on perfectly. But like I said im new to bmws but I've already replaced all 4 o2 sensors all four brakes brake pad sensors and the starter the valve cover gasket and the car runs like a beast! And I've done all the work myself thanks to this forum. But every and any help is appreciated.

I have an extra set of Factory BMW set of 5 (spare included) which came on my 1997 528i when it was new. They are sort of a "web" looking aluminum wheel. Let me know if you want to see some pictures of them. Todd
