Looks like a set of 17" Rondells Style 58. I think they come in 18" as well, but 16" and 17" are mostly recommended for the 6ers.

Thanks RokuMado. Would you also know if I can fit OEM E39 17" wheels on my E24?

Are they Style 5s OEM 39 wheels? I believe the center boring on the wheels are different, but can be fitted with a set of hubcentric rings that you would also have to buy for fitment. It has been done, but why not save the $200+ dollars and just buy better wheels that don't need them.

So being the owner of 2 E24, do you think I should go with those wheels or a set of Style 32 on my red '89? Which one in your opinion is more fits the character? I equally like them both, but need someone to sway me

It is your car, which do you like better. The mesh styles are said to be more period correct, but it is always personal taste. Very similar to the Style 32s and E39 Style 5s, I have both styles.

My 17" ALPINAs and 17" BBS RNs. I do like my ALPINAs best, but I am in a constant hunt for MORE wheels. I really like the "old school" three piece Hartge and BBS RS sets, but until I find another good euro candidate, I'm trying hard to stay away. Wheels are an illness...

I actually have a rare set of deep dish BBS RZs that I'm keeping for my next Euro E24 and I like old school Hartge wheels for E28s

Try not to rush into new wheels too fast. There are always a few nice sets that pop up every now and then. Too many times folks jump into a set for convenience instead of getting what they really want. Good Luck on your hunt.
