Wheel offset question

The wheels I've been looking at have a 15mm offset, to my knowledge the e34 has a 20mm offset. Is that 5mm diffrence too much? My ride is kinda harsh already as my car is lowered and I'd prefer not to completley ruin the ride quality.

Basically, I can get a good price on these rims and I'd like to know what I should look for as far as these rims go with fitment.

What's the width and diameter of them?

Generally speaking, 15mm should be alright.

Found something i kinda like with a perfect offset for my car....

So now, what size tires would I need for these? Does the fact that my car is lowered matter?
