Tire Diameter would be 1" short (E46 M3n uses 26" overall diameter wheel/tire combo). Bolt pattern is correct, but offset is probably not. On the E46 M3 those wheels used a 20mm offset on the back and 40mm on the front. They still may fit, though they probably would not look quite right. If you have your old invoice # or anything, email me to ben@tirerack.com and I can look at exactly which part # you have.
