M-Parallels rule. They should look pretty good on your car, but they are really at home on the E38.

they'll look good, they come as part of the sport package on e-39's, I think M5 wheels would look better though, just a thought

NO WAY!!... M parallels look way better on E34's than the M5's.

i wouldn't mix the rim sizes like that only because it will a) look silly, b) probably handle and drive funny or poorly.
(but it could drive fine too, but it would look weird with one tire thinner than the other to compensate for wheel diameter)

try going staggard with a wider rim in the back rather than larger.

ACTUALLY!!
lets not forget about the beautiful Z06, which has 17's up front and 18's on back!!!
and mind you it has INCREDIBLE handling!!!
