Aftermarket E46 M3 Wheels on E90 M3?

Hey, Guys,

Just made the jump from the E46 M3 to the E90 M3. I have a set of aftermarket summer wheels from the old car. I'm trying to figure out whether they'll fit [well] on the new ride.

The aftermarket wheels are 8.5" F and 10" R. Also, the offsets are 35 F and 20 R. From reading on this forum, I understand that the OEM offsets on this car are 29 F and 23 R, in both the case of the 219's and the 220's. The competition 359's are 31 F and 25 R. So, factoring in these offfsets alone, the new wheels are 6 mm off in the front and 3 mm off in the rear. In theory, the wheels should fit and be spaced fairly well. Yeah?

My question is whether I am accounting for everything I need to in determining fitment and ideal spacing of these wheels on the E90 M3? I plan to test fit the wheels to the car this weekend but I was curious to get people's thoughts on the general approach.
