Winter Rim Advice

Hi Everyone,

I have my 19" Nokian Hakkapalatta winter tires from my f10 550i. I want to use them on my m5, but I'm having trouble finding reasonably priced 19" rims for the m5. When I go to Tire Rack it doesn't even give the option, it just lists 20" wheels. Any thoughts or suggestions.

Be careful about brake clearance. Just because the diameter and offsets look correct does not mean they will clear the M5 brake calipers.

This has been discussed in the past. The only 19" wheels I am aware of that fit are the OEM 19" staggered wheels, the 408m oem winter set (which I have) and the BBS FI 19" (not cheap).

Your best bet might be to buy inexpensive 20" wheels and good snow tires which would cost about the same as OEM 19" wheels alone.

Or keep a look out for a used set of 408m wheels on this forum and grab them.

Just a thought.
