I believe (could be wrong) that BMW makes two
different offset M parallel "sets" of wheels,
one for the M-5 (E-34) and one for the E-38.
Tommy, I believe its the E-38 M-parallel's that
will stick out on the E-34.
Drew seems to know the most about these wheels.
Drew if you are out there, could you shed some
light on this?

(thinking about M-parallel replicas...tired of
the bottlecaps)


Are those OEM M-Parallel or the Replica. From what I was told, the OEM offset will not work with the E34 M5 as the Replica will. With OEM, I got the back wheels on and it stuck out about 3mm and the fronts were out about 10mm. As for the Replicas, they are a perfect fit. Please let me know if this is the case, since I too want to use those wheels (OEM) but don't want to find out the offset is different.

Best regards,


128K miles, beautiful condition. Needs nothing. Follow the link for more info and pictures. I really have to sell it.
$21900 or?
