Default 19” e46 wheels on e93?

I have a set of OEM 19” wheels leftover from my e46 M3. They are 19x8 and 19x9.5. The dealer wasn’t sure if the hubs would fit. Can anyone confirm if they will fit on my e93?

I’m planning to use them for my winter set up. Thanks!

I loled at the dealer not knowing if the hubs would fit... just goes to show how much the BMW dealer actually knows. E60 5 Series /E63 6 Series, E46 3 Series, E9x 3 series all use 72.5 center bore wheels. But the E39 for example has a different bore 74.1. All of these cars however utilize a 5x120 bolt pattern 5 lug setup.

I'm not too sure if the front wheels will even bolt on because the offset is too sunken in. The rears will fit fine, however the wheels overall will look weird on a e9x. Similar to E9x wheels looking weird on a E46.

Do you think spacers would help the offset of the front wheels?

Yes of course if I had to say probably a 20-25mm spacer... but seriously they would look weird and I wouldn't go any higher than a 15mm spacer.

They'll fit the hubs.

A 10-15mm spacer should be plenty to make a snow setup not look offensively funny.
