They should fit fine, although the tires (if they're stock E34 tires) will be about 3% larger than stock. I had E34 15" wheels and 225/60/15 tires on my '86 528e without any clearance problems.

A 16" alternative might be the E38 cross-spoke wheels. They're 16x8, 23mm offset. You should be able to find a set of those without tires for about $500-$600. I have them on my '94 530iT pictured below.
