Re: larger rear alloys than front...any known problems?

Hi All,

I hope you can helps with this. I am looking to purchase some alloys for my 7 Series- E38, which currently has 16inch Wheels. A friend of mine has a 540i, and has the 17 in alloys Im after- he's offered to give me them for a really good price, but can anyone clarify the following for me?

1. Does it matter the fact that the alloys came off a 540i instead of a 7 series?
2. More importantly, the set that my friend is offeringhas larger rears than the fronts...what are the implications of this?

Thanks,
Ismail
