Planning on Breyton Magics

Hey guys,

I found a deal for Breyton Magic 18" rims, however, I'm not sure of what I need for these to fit well. According to the seller, they're made for the m3 e46 and have the following specifications: 18"x8.5" offset 38 (Front) And 18x9.5 offset 19 (Rear) with 5x120 bolt pattern

These should fit well on my e90 right? Also, since I have standard suspension, I'm looking a good spring kit, more specifically the Eibach Spring set, which lower 1.2" in the front, and 1.0" in the back. Since the lowering isnt too substantial, would I need to replace with matched shocks, or should they suffice?

Thanks.

Garage List
the wheels should be able to fit.

As for suspension, new shocks aren't an absolute neccesity, but combined with the springs they would provide a much more sporty car. I would suggest koni or bilstein sport shocks myself
