Looking at some 5er wheels, will they fit me E90?

I\'m looking at some 5 series wheels on eBay. Just wondering if they will fit? Differences I see are the offset and center bore.

Center Bore is 74.1 on the 5series and 72.6 on my car.
Offset is 20mm on the 5 series wheels and 38 on my car

Size is standard 18x8.5 and 18x9.5

Think they will fit without rubbing? Likely run 255x35 18 and 225x40 18

What year is your 5 ser?
If the bore on the wheels are 74.1 then all you need are hub rings from
74.1-72.56 and I'm sure who ever is selling them to you will provide the rings but the off set on the wheels do t seem right, 15et - 25et is what is required for any 5ser from 2010 and older, only the new 5ser model requires a 30 to 38 et unless you have a older all wheel drive ix model.

I'll admit that I am no expert, and can't comment on bore, but I think you are very likely to have offset issues particularly with the rears. I used the standard stock staggered rear wheel fitment of 8.5 width + 37 as a starting point in the fitment calculator and you are basically taking all of the extra width of the 9.5 in wheel and putting it towards the curb side of the wheel well.

From my time spent reviewing posts on fitment, offsets on 5 series and M3 wheels generally tend to be too aggressive for an E90/E92.

That's unfortunate. Off to find a different set of wheels.
