5series e39 centre bore is 74mm you will req spigot rings to install these wheels on your car pcd and offset are the same they will fit without the spigot rings but u will get severe vibration i know this because it has happened to me cured it this morning installed the spigot rings refitted wheels drives really smooth now hope this helps you out let me know how you get on regards jimbob 1990 530ise is my ride by the way

Thanks for info Jimbob. I had to do a search on spigot rings because I didn't know what they were. What year 7 series wheels did you install? Also you mention you have a 1990 530. I only concern is my car 1997 528i (E39). Do these car have the same specs on the offset and centre bore?
