You'll likely rub or be very close to rubbing the insides of the rear wheel on the suspension. Might need ~5mm spacers to clear that, depending on your suspension setup and camber.

Front won't fit well without modifications. It'll need spacers for sure to clear the suspension, and when clearing that with 10+mm spacers the wheel probably will be poking out of the fenders a bit.

There are too many variables here for us to tell you definitively. I've listed them in order of importance:
  • Exact tire (size, brand, model)
  • Ride height
  • Camber
  • Suspension type (stock-style strut, or smaller coil-overs)
The E34 front fender can swallow a slightly stretched and short sidewall tire on a 18x10 (typically 255/35 or 265/35 regular street models) with the right offset/spacer combo, ride height, and negative camber. Going wider or playing with track-focused rubber, you will either need to apply a lot small tweaks or compromise with higher ride height.

Mainly, I think a front wheel and tire that large are useless on a stock E34 unless you are autocrossing.
