jeff,...i'm currently running the 205/55 on 16X8's on my 535..while some may say its unacceptable, the price was right,.the car has been autocrossed, run at extended triple digit speeds and is generally used hard..no problems with the tires or wear at all. ideally i should go with 225/50's but cant justify the cost right now..
e-mail me direct and i can send pics for an idea

I just bought a set from Ebay and now have a chance at some sharp 16x8 e34 rims. Just wonder if I'm out a set of tires.

P.S. Not trying for the ghetto look. I want to make sure they would still look right.
