E90 vs E36/46 Fitment

I was looking on tire rack for wheels for my E90 and for some reason I decided to look under a different car. (Too much free time).. But what happened was when I looked for wheels for a e36 or e46, more options came up. I dont think the wheel bolt pattern/ center bore has changed since those generations so is that just a fault with the website or will those wheels actually not fit my car? I am pretty sure they will clear my brakes and I cant think of any other reason they would not list them when searching for my car.

So the offset difference would cause the wheel to hit my caliper? Could i fix that with spacers?
