2010 M3 Wheels fit F30?

I am looking for a set of winter wheels for the F30 I have on order since mine will come with a summer set. I know someone selling their winter 260M set from a 2010 M3. They also already have the TPMS installed. Will they work on my new (yet to be received) car? I am just trying look for a good deal on a winter set, as I will only need to be in the winter climate of Germany for 1 more season. The wheel specs are as follows:

Front:18x8.5 et 29
Rear: 18x9.5 et 23

Maybe with spacers?

Thanks!

considering that you need these for winter i would not purchase that set up.
your car requires a much higher off set like 18x8.5 35et fronts and 18x9.5 45et
this would be a " normal" set up but please consider that "winter wheels" or a winter set up means you get snow so im guessing that at some point you might need snow chains and that will require some fender room. just a thought.

have a great weekend !!

Thanks for the response!

I will definitely not need chains. Believe it or not, it is illegal in this part of Germany. I have been here for four years, and good snow tires are sufficient for almost everything. I have been running Bridgestone Blizzaks on my E46.

Yeah, I know the offset is not correct, but do you think I can get spacers to make it work? If so, what sizes (front/rear) would you suggest?

Spacers are meant to get your offset higher, so the wheels would come even further out. This is not an option I would consider.

Try finding some replica wheels which have better offsets. WSP from Italy is pretty decent quality for replica (not the best option but why not for winter wheels..).

It seems like you all know what you're talking about so maybe you could help me out. I'm interested in some 19" DPE's (8.5 front, 10 rear, unknown offset since DPE doesn't release that info) from an E46 but not sure if it'll fit on my F30. I also plan on lowering 1.25" with H&R springs. Help please.
