Tyre size advice needed

Hi, I'm still looking to sort my winter tyres out in advance of my car arriving. Spoken to BMW and they said they would need the chasis number etc before they could tell me what price. Couldn't tell me which alloys I could and couldn't put on it etc etc. No that helpful although I do understand their position to an extent.

So, in the real world, my mate has offered me a set of alloys on the cheap. According to the spec they are 17", 5x120 stud pattern (I think that means 5 studs and 120mm diameter) 8J width 72 bore and 34 offset. What I don't know is what most of that means and whether it'll fit a 2011 E90 saloon 330d M Sport?

Any advice would be great please. If there are OK then I should be OK to order a set of 225/45 Wintrac Extremes to go with them. The hey presto, safe winter driving and I won't be stuck in Sussex for weeks on end unable to get out of the driveway!
