06' 325xi...will a et 50mm work?

I'm looking at a wheel w/specs 18" x 8.5", 50mm Offset. I'm going to do square all around...will this work?

why would you want a wheel with +50 whether it fits or not? that'll make your e90 look ridiculous and handle like shit.

to answer the question tho, you'll need spacers.

Do you really want to use spacers like 20-25mm front and 30-35mm to rear to get the wheels close to fender. I would pass and find something else.
