although the offset and bolt pattern will work with your car......I'd be kind of wary of the fact that it is 73.1.........that means it is about .5mm oversized for bmw's that are 72.56. There is the slight possibility that .5 mm could cause some vibration in your steering wheel cause they are not hubcentric.

Yeah I was worried about that would I be able to buy spacers or hubcentric rings or what ever they are called.

Okay so I found hubcentric wheel rings I need 72.56 inner and 73.1 outter. Now my question is if I wanted to use a 5mm or 10mm spacers can I get a spacer that that has the wheel ring with it or do I need both

If you can find spacers that are 72.6->73.1 Then you donīt need hubcentric wheel rings.
I would recommended 10-15mm spacer to front and 20mm to rear.It will look better.

Just to be clear these are spacers


And these are hubcentric wheel rings


Also tyre size 225/40/18 or 235/40/18 allround
