+1 Agree

That's about 17,000 miles a year -- way over average for any car! Sounds like this was a daily driver, which means lots of wear and tear. If you're mechanically inclined -- and it...

Yeah, we would need more specifics about the wheels you mentioned. (If OEM, what style?) An E60 xi requires an offset between ET 35-45. Staggering the wheels adds other complications because you need...

Original equipment for your make and model in a 17 would be 245/45R-17. What you suggested will work, but your speedometer will be a bit off. You do not need spacers as long as you stick with OEM...

Doesn't matter anyway. Honda rims won't fit your Bimmer. The E60 lug pattern is 5 x 120. You should be able to use the tires, though. Just get a set of the proper rims off of Craigslist and post...

So far, no one has mentioned concentric rings. If your wheels are not OEM, chances are the hub bore is not 72.5, in which case you may need the rings. It's a cheap solution (about $8.00 a set...
