those are my personal favorite BMW wheels, they should fit on all bmws since the lug nut pattern is the same. they shouldnt be too big, but youll need very low-pros

I think they won't fit. The rears -- I think -- are too wide. Those are straight off an M3. Usually people get replicas or M-Tech wheels that look exactly the same, but do fit on non-M cars. It's either that or the offset is wrong. I really don't remember.

The rears will fit. I have 8.5" on my rears and they fit fine, very very small amount of rubbing and only on the inside. Fronts however I don't know, mine are 7.5" and they do fit but from the look of it, it seems like anything bigger won't fit. But that's just my guess

Ask the seller about the offset then. You may need spacers. I'm not trying to be a pain -- just don't want you to buy something you cannot use.
