will these alloys fit?

Hi guys and girls
Looking to pick up some winter wheels for next year.
I am looking at a set of 270 style m3 alloys with winter tyres and need to know if they fit the car. Have searched and this offset calculator is doing my nut in
Wheels are the same as these
http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=567922
Front & Rear alloy wheels: 18x8" ET20
Wheel part number: BMW 36112283905

I currently have the following fitted to my 2007 e93 335i and they fit no problem.
Front - 19x8.5 et40 Rears - 19x9.5 et40 with the following tyres Front are 235/35/19 back 265/40/19

Many thanks in advance
Lee
P.S. edited the post instead of creating a new one, so the first reply will differ.

I have a 2007. E93 335i.

You'll need either a 10 or 12mm spacer on the front which will push the wheel further out from the suspension strut.
A 10mm spacer will give you an offset of ET37 (standard offset for the E93), a 12mm spacer will give you an offset of ET35.

The rears at ET26 will have the wheel sat out in line with the rear arch,but as the wheels are 18",you should be OK.

i run a winter tyre set up on 270m wheels.

no rubbing or issues in my e91 2006, though i understand the tolerances, esp at the rear are different on an e92/3.

it shouldn't be a problem, they should fit fit - the risk will be the rears will be near the outer arch. mine are ok, probably tight once chains fitted (my tyres are new so not needed to use / fit my chains yet), but still possible to use I reckon.

They look great imo, best e9x wheel by miles. I think they look better than my 19" 225Ms!
