: I'm looking to buy one (or maybe two) E34 M5 17" rim, the kind that came with the "turbo fan" or "throwing star" cover but are a black 5-spoke underneath. I do not need the cover, just the wheel(s). Must be straight and curb-rash-free.

I was looking for one of these wheels also.
BMW p/n 36 11 2 226 706. (the numbers 2226 706 are located on the wheel hub)
I cut a corner short, hung the outside if the tire off the pavement and bent the inside of the rim on a dip in the edge of the roadway, ouch!!!
I didn't find any on the web at a reasonable price, also I was afraid I would also get someone's discards.
So, I ordered a new one from VOB Auto Sales(BMW Dealer) for $290 (list is $404). That's a better price than I've seen from a few price gougers with used wheels out there.
My bent wheel will be easy to striaghten since the rim never contacted the asphalt, it just has a slight flat spot in the inside lip of the rim.
