OEM Style 161 Double Spoke

Can I replace my 330i style 159 wheels (8 x 17 225/45 R17) with the style 161 wheels using the same size (8 x 17 225/45 R17) all around for front and back? I know these wheels are staggered for the 325 sport package, but I would like to stick with the 17" all seasoned tires delivered with my 330i and just put them on these wheels. Is it possible?

Thanks in advance!

Yes you can. The only thing is that the rear ones will stretch slightly on the rim (not a big deal) so they will appear to have a slightly lower profile. It's not even a problem and you probably wouldn't be able to tell anyway.
