    Would X5 alloys fit on my 530i e34? I've checked the centre bore size and they are the same at 72.5mm. Offset for e34 is 13-20, and X5 40-45. I am thinking they will fit but am totally baffled about tyre sizes.

    Has anybody actually fitted them to an e34? Any advice appreciated.

    X5 alloys won't fit, the offset is such that they'll be too close to (and may foul) the suspension/inner wheelarch.
