I always understood there to be a difference in the hubs of the 3, 5 and 7 series, hence not all wheels will fit another series. Might want to verify that with your dealership.

I dont think it will fit due to the offset. The tires on them like someone else said are probably to think, you would need like 40 series if they even do fit...

I don't, but from what i can tell all bmw's have the same lug pattern (5 X 120mm). the offset is rarely the same between different models and years. the offset makes a huge difference in the stress levels in different suspension parts. The other major deciding factor is the inner clearance between the shocks/struts and the wheel. they make spacers to compensate for higher offset which cost around $200 for 4. i was looking into buying rims from a 2004-5 5 series to put on my e46 and from what i could tell and calculate i would need 1" spacers for them to fit. in my opinion the rims you want to put on would not be worth the extra $200 for spacers to make them fit, especially for the eBay price...

now for these rims i would consider spending $200 more.

What's the difference between a porcupine and a BMW?

A porcupine has the pricks on the outside.

They will not fit. The offset is different.
