can 18' M-wheels fit on e92 330d?

I have an e92 330d and want to put 18'' M-wheels on, the 18'' are ''M light-alloy wheels Double-spoke style 260M, size =8.5J x 18 / tyres 245 / 40 ZR 18= front and =9.5J x 18 / tyres 265 / 40 ZR 18= rear ".

My car came with the 188 model size: front 225/45/17 and rear 255/40/17.

The question is can i just replace the wheels and tyres and have no problem with the size and fit?

It would just be easier to buy an M3.

it will be totally off because of the wider fenders of the M3

unless you dont mind your wheels sticking out of your fenders...

The specs on the OEM wheels (18" style 260, 19" style 220) for the M3:

Style 260 18"
Front: 8,5 x 18 245/40 R18 ET29 (11,33kg)
Rear: 9,5 x 18 265/40 R18 ET23 (10,54kg)

Style 220 19"
Front: 8,5 x 19 245/35 R19 ET29 (unofficial ~13kg)
Rear: 9,5 x 19 265/35 R19 ET23 (unofficial ~13kg)

according to southlight

so the offset might be too aggresive. just get replicas from the vendor forum

Why are the front 18" wheels heavier than the rear?

Good question. Maybe an error in the parts catalogue!?
