They are the standard alloy now fitted to the 5 Series and they look well on the E34 IMO.

I personally don't really like them. They're 'ok' NOt bad, not good.

Take a look at this thread on bmw5.co.uk, this guy has them...

I'm not sure these suit this car though, just my opinion.

Not really a fan, in my opinion mixing wheel from one series to another
nearly always looks wrong. Best 18" for the E34 - M-Parallels.

M-Parallels all the way on the E34/E39/E38 methinks. Saw a lovely Topaz Blue 540i Sport E39 on them yesterday....

1 quick question what about individuality there are a lot of 5's with M-parallels.They do make the car look good.

But i think those set the car of even better. thats me tho i like to be different.

Your alloys are very similar except not as curved.
