: : : I am looking at a set of 16" BBS RZ's (Basketweave style, 37mm offset?)off of an E30. The question is, will it fit my E28 535i? If any of you know, I would appreciate an answer. It would be great to get rid of the TRXs.

: : I bought a set of 16 inch wheels with 20mm offset for my 535i and they fit great. I even lowered the car slightly with H&R springs and sport Bilsteins with no problems. 37mm offset does not sound like what you want. Good luck. Getting rid of my TRX's was the best thing I ever did. I went the Tire Rack route with 16"X 7 1/2" MM11's. Great deal!

I used Dunlop D40 M2's P225/50ZR16's bought as discontinued tires. I did roll the rear fender lips slightly (big hammer careful aim).
