: : These wheels will fit and E34/E39/E38
: Oops!!! Wheels for the E39 will NOT fit E34 or E38 without the use of some sort of "hack" adapter. I strongly advise against using adapters to make wheels fit correctly. BMWs are intended to be used with hubcentric wheels. 'Nuff said.
The "hack" adapter you refer to is a hubcentric ring. These have been used for decades to great success in multiple applications. Just because YOU don't appreciate the application doesn't make it a fact that their use is unadvisable, FACTMASTER!
In the future, reserve comment for "facts" you can back with "real" data.
