20" TIS wheels no. 7

I have a friend who is selling a set of 20" TIS style no. 7 wheels. They have come off a 2004 745Li. The size of the tires are 245 / 40 / 20R. I have an E38 740iL and want to know if these will fit without any issues.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanx

BALL'N lol, they look pretty good, but maybe gloss black spokes would look better, IMO of course
drop the front of the car and it will look worlds better

so I am having some wierd vibrations, both in the steering wheel and in the seats, once I hit 70 km/hr all the way to 90 km/hr, but goes away after 90 and before 70.

went back to the place that installed them, they had balanced the tires infront of me, and they are perfect. he said that with the size of rims, and the low profile tires 245 / 40 / 20R, that it is common to have these vibrations. I'm VERY used too the smooth ride of the 7, and this feels too out of place.

Any idea's or concerns as to what could be causing this?

Thanx

I would have said balancing right away, so you got me. Maybe its the huge wheel putting stress on the joints of the suspension. If the guy says its normal then i dont know. Ask him if there's a way to fix it.
