I actually ended up buying my 18" Radial Styling wheels and tires from my local BMW dealer (Crevier BMW in Santa Ana, CA) for nearly the same price as Jason @ bmwwheels.com; this package was mounted, balanced and ready to go in only 2 days. I liked the fact of having local contact for both wheels, tires and BMW parts/acessories(at great prices!). I especially like the fact that Crevier BMW made me aware that the Radial Styling wheels for an E38 share the same hub size as an E34. I feel more comfortable with my new set up knowing that I never have to deal with hub centric rings!!!
After my suspension shop installed the H&R sport springs they informed me that my passenger front shock was blown. Crevier BMW pulled up OE Boge replacement shock options on the BMW parts database. It showed two different OE Boge shock options, "standard" and "sporty". I opted for the "sporty Boge" to match with the H&R sport springs and should be installed by this Thursday. I am extremely happy with this upgrade and would recommend it to any BMW owner!
