    Not just the wheels you want to use; the wheels you have on the car, too.

    See, by comparing the specs, you can get an idea if you're going to have problems.

    19" E63 M6 wheels have offsets of 12 front/17 rear. Other 19" E63 6er wheels are 14/18 or 14/14, depending on the wheel.
    The Style 37 850CSi wheels - 8x18 and 9.5x18 - have offsets of 13/25.
    The E63 wheels might result in some rub on the rear fender lip, depending on the tire width you choose.

    Just to clarify something that SEEMS to have gotten overlooked

    This is just to eliminate some confusion, but you are aware that an 8-series is an E31 and not an E24, right? The E24 is the original 6-series coupe (1976-1989).

    Simplest buying advice when buying a used E31 is be prepared to open your wallet! The better examples command quite a disportionate amount of money considering that the newest examples are going on 14 years old. The good ones aren't cheap to acquire or keep.
