Do 18in E46 M3 wheels fit the E92?

Hi
I am sure this has been addressed before but I cant find it. I am looking for some used 18in OEM wheels for my e92 to mount snow tires. There are a lot of "style 67" sets around (8Jx18 & 9Jx18). Anyone know if these fit? I heard rumors that older wheels don't clear our brakes.
thanks
Ian

thanks for the reply. You mean they wont fit the front because of the brake issue?

yes

18x8 needs low offset, check tirerack.com for specs on the asa wheels recommended for snow use on the e9x

I think they might be ok. I've seen a white one here racing with the E46 M3 rims for sure.

The OEM e46 M3 18" wheels will need large spacers for it to fit properly on the e9x M3 as the offsets are pretty high and conservative.
