I put 17" 93 M5 wheels on my 92 535i and except for a little rid harshness, the ride is great.

Depending on the wheels, you have to be careful.
E34's are heavy cars and cheap wheels will bend.

I also replaced my shocks, bushings, control arms, and ball joints at the time I mounted my new wheels. This way the larger wheels wouldn't have an adverse affect on the car.

Good luck!
