Wheel fitting problem

Hey Guys,

Hi im new. Hope you guys can help me. I just bought a set of M5 parallel rims for my 525i E34. The size is Front 225/35/18 and Rear is 255/35/18.

The problem is when i tried to fit them, the tire is hitting the suspension and it's not sitting to the hub. There is about 10 to 20mm gap between the rim and the hub.

Whats is the best way to solve this problem?

I had the same problem on my 5 series, just by some wheel spacers the appropriate size and that will give you enough room between the wheel and the suspension
