      I'm certain you can use them with spacers, but lests no go down
      that route. Just say NO!

      Also some of the 7 series wheels will fit.

      Ohh - contraversial! Well subjective anyway.
      I quite like the original E28 wheels but I wouldn't pay 130 quid
      per tyre for any vehicle! It's made worse when you realise that
      the metric tyres available are less effective and cause more
      road noise than modern rubber.
      Shop on eBay: I bought a near immaculate set of '95 7 series
      wheels for not very much money and had tyres fitted, my 528i is
      currently shod with 225/50/16s. Total cost was less than buying
      2 metric tyres.

      I also bought some very cheap imperial wheels for my 520i with
      tyres also from eBay and that's running 215/45/17 on the rear
      and 205/50/17 on the front the entire package was less than 150
      quid including shipping.
