Note I have these in my car now. Running 245/35 in the front and 285/30 in the rear, very very close to the tire spec for the 172M wheels (also 19s).Remember getting your wheels further out will result in more stone chipping. Now most of us have aluminum front wheel arches but the rear can and will rust - mighty fast if I may add.
So consider it carefully before doing it. In regards to the actual rims on the photo they look like something from an E65 7 series. Not sure if these are original BMW rims but you can get the original ones to fit on a E60 provided you have a “larger’ model that were born with 18’s or bigger rims. They don’t extend that far out but based on the concave design they look further out than they are based on how your eyes see it.
In any case 19”s will look a loot better no matter what just be aware of the effect that potholes can have. Last time I had my tires changed I had 3 rims that had been hit so hard that they were no longer round. Still need to fix my winter tires with rims for the same problem.
The 10mm spacers from Burger look like the retain the hubcentric lip so hope it works out.Have you used a plumb line to measure how much further you want to push the wheels out? On level ground, hang the plumb line from the fender and measure the horizontal gap between the line and the outside edge at the top of the wheel.
FWIW, I have read that 10mm spacers can be problematic because the lip on our hubs is 10mm.
Hang it from the outside of the fender directly above the centre of the wheel. Use a bob that will not contact the wheel when hanging to ensure that the line hangs plumb.The 10mm spacers from Burger look like the retain the hubcentric lip so hope it works out.
Have not used a plumb line to measure, where should I hang it from exactly? I’ve never used one before.
