The new m5 rims fit on the e60 (obviously)and the e39 as they both have the same center bore and stud pattern - I can't remember the bore measurements off the top of my head but it is bigger than the e34 and e28 center bore. However, I have heard of fitting rings which allow these type of rims to be fitted to the 34's and 28's, BUT there is talk of a lot of probable vibration problems.

Doesn't that reinforce my point way back then when fitting a mod you may be inviting extra troubles over and beyond the original fitting?

Nah.. these probs are due to machining not being as tight as it could be - some people have no probs what so ever. Plus what you were fitting were something which could be included on the car when new as an option.
