F10 5er wheels on a 328xi

Hey guys, looking for some input. Do you think these wheels will fit on my 2007 328xi:

Style 237, 18x8 square ET 30. http://www.bmwstylewheels.com/bmw/237

I plan to run 235/40-18

If they fit, how flush do you think they will be with the fenders? Thanks!

TPMS lugs

Looks like these use different lugs and TPMS. Still researching...

See this thread, post #4 and onward.

From what it looks like, the bolts have indeed changed. However it also appears that the bolt holes have not, so all you need are new bolts. This is purely what I've gleaned off that thread, so don't take my word for it 100%. With regards to the TPMS (see post #8 on linked thread), it looks like they are different too...

If you end up being able to run those wheels though, they'll fit just fine; won't be too flush I don't think. If you want a "flusher" stance then just get spacers. Although IMHO, it'd be too much of a hassle trying to run those wheels lol you have a lot more options (better looking ones too) that will give you less of a headache.

Why he would need new bolts? E9x uses 12x1.5 60 degrees conical seat bolts. It doesn't matter what size bolts F10 has(If the f10 wheel bolt seat is still same conical seat as E9X has), of course he uses the (stock) bolts that fits to E9X.

Yes those specs will fit, but wont be flush, especially at the rear. You could probably add 5-10mm spacer to front and 15-20mm to rear. My winter setup is 17x8 et20 front and et10 rear however i have narrower 225/45/17 tyre.
