I've got the same set up from tire rack and like it.
Tire rack could help with fitment questions.

Yeah, 850s are one of the best looking cars BMW ever made, but they would not be fun to own, especially the 12-cyl 850 (versus the 8-cyl 840). That said, if I ever find myself in a fit of insanity with extra money, I'd love to have one.

Nah, they don't look that much like probes. I should know, I used to drive one during winters in high school (in the late '90s) so my GTO could hibernate. It was identical to this one:





Needless to say, I was not a fan of the car, but it was reliable (because it was actually a Mazda 626 underneath). It couldn't even spin one of its front tires under full throttle.

They're on eBay (not CL), but check out these replica Style 5s with E36 offset. Seems like buying these would make tire selection a lot easier than using the authentic E39 version.
