    no.. no... sorry... my wheels have a 15mm offset. Which is 5mm off what the E34 recommends at 20mm. So I was wondering if the 5mm difference is considered drastic. Sorry for the confusion.

    ...the e38 Style 5 (Basket Weave) came mounted with 235/60/16 tires. This tire is too wide for your e34 with a 23mm offset 16" wheel. Your e34 came with 15" wheels mounted with 225/60/15 tires. To use the e38 16" wheel you'll need to change the tire to a 225/55/16 or smaller. Any thing bigger will rub.

    I use my e38's old wheels on my e34 Touring and I have 225/55/16 snow tires mounted on them with no problem.
