    Yes they will; just confirm that the offsets are 20

    I believe the offset is more like 15mm, isn't it?

    You can put from 13 to 23 mm offset on the e34, 20 being the optimum offset. It all depends on your tire selection, the closer you goto 23 the less wide of a tire you can use, because it will rub your suspension. I cant stress enough how important it is to find the exact tire size for your application.

    I thought the BBS wheels are 16x8" with a +10 offset.......also you can only use a 225/55-16 tire......and if they do make a 17x8" BBS wheel I am not aware of it. But a 17" fitment would use a 235/45-17.....otherwise the center-bore is correct and they will work.
