Will e90 (ET31) wheels fit an e46 (ET46) ??

A friend is interested in buying my e90 style 268 16x7 wheels. He would like to use them on his 2005 e46 sedan.

His current wheels are 16x7 with an ET46 offset.

I'd like to know if he can replace his with my wheels which have an E31 offset. I realize the offset differences will shift the new wheels out 0.59" to the outside. Is that too much? He doesn't want to have to roll the fenders.

Oh, and he wants to move his current 205/55/16 tires over to the new wheels.
