e53 wheels on e70??

Someone with a e70 4.8 wants to buy my new set of type 69 18" wheels that I have for his winter setup.

Will they fit ?

According to my information size, offset and center bore would be ok but the dealer is telling him no.

My wheels are 18x8.5 with ET:43

"Ok" as in close, but wheel bore hole is slightly diff from the
E53 to the E70:
-Wheel bore on E53 wheels is 72.56 mm
-Wheel bore on E70 wheels is 74.1

A good machinist could probably enlarge your E53 wheel bore
to match the E70, but YMMV.

Here are some links, below. The Search Tab, upper right of page,
third tab in from right, works pretty well in hunting up info.
