That's exactly what I was told by online vendors & local vendors.
I learnt this lesson just now and luckily, the wheel manuf. admitted they were wrong right from the start by guaranteeing their wheels will fit and clear the M5 front brak caliper. Otherwise, I am stuck with a $5000 alum coffee table.
Therefore, for all of you looking for aftermarket 19" ... be careful and ask questions.
