Will front 19" BMW 225M*wheels fit on the rear?

Hi, as the title just checking that the front 19" 225M alloy wheels will fit on the rear of my E92? Thinking of sourcing an extra pair of fronts as the rears are hard to find, I want to fit some winter tyres on them for use only in bad weather, I won't be using them all winter but having got stuck numerous times in bad weather with my former car, an E36 M3 I was hoping this may help on my 330d.
Cheers.

They'll fit,but look very,very strange.

Fit a 15/20mm spacer and they'll look better.

Not bothered too much what they look like, it's hopefully just a quick way of getting some traction on the very few days of heavy snow we get, will only take 30 mins max to swap them over.
Why do you think they will look very strange? older models had a spare front in the boot even if they were fitted with wider rears.
