Watch out for the offsets.....if they are any different you will make the car dangerous under braking.


From what I know, the 740 wheel (M-Parallel) will fit the E34 if all four wheels are 18x8. If you go 18x8f and 18x9.5r then thats another story.

You could go to Discount Tire and get the 18x8's (Replica Alloys) for about $249.00 ea. After all is said and done, wheels and tires you will spend a good $1,900.00. I think they look great. Try ebay, they usualy have some sets going to $1,195.00 but IMO thats way too much.

Do the 18" M Parallel rims from a 740 Sport fit an 89 535?
Is there an aftermarket manufacturer that has something similar. I have seen this rim on other E34's but unsure of it's source. Any help would be appreciated.
