E92 and E39 5series Differences

I have e92 and e39 that I drive often. Out of curiousity, will my aftermarket rims on the e92 fit on the e39?

Rims: have ICONZ 880ZR, 19x8 & 19x10, Front- 235/35/19 Rear 265/30/19) on my E92 335i.

Will these rims fit on a 2001 E39 5 series? I would like to have the rims on the E39.

Doing a little research I found that

E39 = PCD 5x120, centre bore 74.0mm and M12x1.5 bolt thread. ET 15-25
E90's = center bore 72.56 mm

Does the adapter only work going to a lower number?

If your Iconz wheels center bore is 72.6? You can't use those directly on E39 because it won't fit over the 74.1 centerbore. Hubcentric rings works only towards smaller diameter.

However

You could find spacers that are 74.1-> 72.6 centerbore.
What size spacers depends on your Iconz wheels offsets?

Thats gonna be a hard one...you are in the same boat i'm in...I have a e39 and a e92. The e39 can take larger offset and have a bigger bore. So if you were to use adapter to go from e92-->e39 you will need to us spacers or the wheels will be really sunk in but at the same time the e92 bore is smaller so that still wouldn't really work unless you got a machine shop to bore them a little more ...and if you run e39-->e92 wheels your offsets and tire sizes will be bigger then what the e92 can technically handle but you can use hub rings to make them work. Hope that makes sense.
