Ok, I am back on track with my E34. It is bone stock right now, Alpine white/Navy.

Plans:
Eibach Pro-Kit (running this on my E420, LOVE the balance of performance & comfort)
Hella European Ellipsoid headlights
Rieger infinity front lip splitter
Alpina inspired satin black stripes running along both sides of car
BMW OE mud flaps
M5 seats (needle in a hay stack, I know, but one day!)

AND.... NEW WHEELS....

I have been torn on which wheels I want to go with.... so many choices, but not many that really jump out at me and make me druel.

I LOVE the E34 M5 System 1 wheels with Turbine Covers.... would really give it that old school finishing touch.....

BUT, I am in LOVE with the stock E63/64 M6 5-spoke wheels!

I have found a few vendors selling the MIRO Type 346 (M6 replica) in 18"x8" 5x120 with et20 offset.... perfect fit for the E34.

I have heard varied opinions on the quality of this wheel; I ideally would like to go NO larger than 17", and it seems that these M6 replica wheels used to be available in 17"x8" size a year or so ago... but I cannot find them in this size here in the U.S. anymore. I figure since they are replicas, the smaller I go the less chance of bending. 17" is really ideal for what I'd like to achieve with this car.

Does anybody know of a source for M6 replica's in a 17"x8" size?

And lastly, does anybody have any pictures of an E34 rolling on M6 replicas?

An E34 with a drop & slight rake forward, Rieger front splitter, mudflaps, and M6 wheels would look amazing IMO!

I might just have to bite the bullet and go for the 18" M6 reps if I cant find 17"s....
