Hi,

On the E39 you reference, they are Hamann HM2 wheels. The E38 you reference, those are oem Style 37 wheels. The style 37 for an E38 are specific to this car, the exact same design wheel for the E39 is made with a forging process and also has specifications specific to the E39.

Cheers, Dennis!
