    Default I want these wheels but dont know if they will fit help plz

    I found these wheels and was wondering if they will fit my e34 525i. I'm worried mostly about the width of the rear tires and the center bore. I know the center bore is suppose to be 72.5 and these wheels are 72.6 i dont know if that plays a huge role but i want to make sure. Also if any one has suggestions for tires. If you have had 18" in the past and found a really good tire please let me know. Please help me and thank you.

    Here's the link to the wheels

    Well, those are 1/2" wider front and back than OE E34 M-Pars. The bore is fine as factory is 72.56 so a 72.6 will work. It's just the 74.1 on the E39's that's no good.

    You should call them up and see if you can get a set of four of them in 18" x 8.5" rather than the 8.5" up front and 9.5" in back. Really shouldn't go over 9" in the rear with that offset if you can.

    Not quite sure how 8.5" ET20 will fit on the front, but it should be ok as I think that's a stock E60 size, and E60 wheels have been used on E34's just fine.

    And as far as tires go, stick with 245/40/18's all around as that's a stock E34 size and wider than that rubs. Good tires for that size on an E34 would be something along the lines of Michelin PS2's. PS A/S+ would work very well also.
