I want to say the 5-series is like a 74ish and the 3-series is a 72ish...So that could play a difference also. I can barely see...but it looks like they hub size says like 6?.?
A larger wheel hub bore will fit over a smaller brake hub, but it won't be hub-centric. It would have to be the other way to cause a real fitment issue.

Well i took the wheels to another tire shop hoping that they would fit but got the same result. The wheel won't lay flat against the hub. Come to find out it has nothing to do with offsets, the center cutout of the wheel is too small to fit over the center portion that stick out on the hub. I took a few pix. Well i contacted the seller and MRR has arranged to get them pick up tmrw and they will ship another set out as soon as Fedex confirm the pickup.

Glad that they got you sorted out.
As an FYI, the hole in the center of the wheel has a specific diameter, called the "centerbore".

Your hub looks really rusty. Try cleaning your hub with a wire brush. I had spacers what would lay flat kind like how your wheels wont. Cleaned it out with a wire brush and all the rust was the culprit. After the clean the spacers fit perfect.

well i jus received my wheels back from MRR today. i immediately took them to the tire shop to get install. the front wheel does lay flat against the hub this time but...there are only about 1/4 of an inch clearance between the tire and the spring. the installer said it could rub against each other if i go over bumps? so i didnt install them fearing that it could damage my suspension. is there anything that i can do? would adding spacers help in this case?

1/4" clearance sounds like more room than some run. Seen some with 3mm I think.

As a company guaranty please put them on your car, you should have no issues. Control arms and suspension always move and won't rub on your wheel, I'm almost afraid to ask but who are you taking the wheels too? For installation?

I have something like 2-3mm (0.07-0.11inch) clearance to struts at front.

If you can spin the wheel without hitting anything while your car is jacked up, it wont hit the struts while driving.

Only time it can hit the struts is ,if you bend the wheel.
