Word of advice-I put a set of 93 style on my 92 535i and it really isn't as easy as that.
You have to make sure your suspension is up to the extra stress of +2 size wheels and tires.
Be prepared to replace the Thrust arm bushings if you haven't already, ball joints, and control arms. Also, your shocks if you haven't already.
If these components are original, they will ware faster from the added stress. Upgraded Thrust bushings are a good idea-I bought the entire assemble from Bavarian Auto Sport. (Harder bushings, balljoints, control arms-$145)

Good luck!
