X5 y-spoke wheels on an M3?

The other day I saw a few X5 sport running around and they both had the y-spoke wheels that everyone loves. So I started wondering , could they fit an M3. I highly doubt it due to the offset, but figured I'd ask if anyone has found this possible.
Obviously this would be purely for looks.

I was thinking of these two sets. I really think these are better looking than F150 wheels though.

Admittedly, the first set would be.... Interesting.... But I don't think they'd look bad.
Don't worry though, they won't fit anyway, hub is too small I think.

Assuming you're not trolling...

A quick search reveals that the 20" Style 214 Y-spoke wheels weigh something like 37lb front and 38lb rear.

Putting these on your M3 would be like strapping anchors to each corner. Acceleration, braking, cornering and ride would noticeably suffer.

Lol, that's not surprising but i hadn't looked into it that much. Honestly, it was just a curiosity thing.

Ya those things weigh a ton lol. My dad has a set off of his X5 and you cannot lift those things. I wouldn't do it.

Right, I guess photoshop would be my best bet for the visual, which is all i really wanted anyway...I was just curious. Sometimes things like that will surprise you, but there's no way I'd put anything on the M that weighs more than the stock forged 19's. Defeats the car's purpose obviously.

yes you obviously would never do anything like that and were just asking for fun.

You know me so well Chris so I know I don't have to tell you this, but i still say the designs have potential. Since you know me I also don't have to explain that I like to think a little outside the box at times. This idea popped in my head and I posed the question. That's why forums are so cool. I posted this wondering how it would look without giving weight any thought. Paradocs posted the weight which made it clear these wouldn't 'fit'', which was the original question. If I was going to do something like this I would obviously look into the weight, etc. But again, since you know me so well I'm sure you know exactly what I would've done.

okay gotcha. i just thought it would be common knowledge that 20s off an SAV would be a no go on any car but that was assuming too much. i also have inside line on what monstrosities they are as i have them on my x5. they do look good but a 20x10 front wouldnt work in that offset either.
