Yes, they will fit with no issues. I have BMW style rims (162) which are from E9X and intend to use them as my winter set on my F30. Given that I was able to measure the hole size and compered to bolt size of F30 (M14) vs E90(M12)

M12 Bolt - 12mm (0.472")
M14 Bolt - 14mm (0.551")

BMW Rims Style 162 Hole size 16.13mm(0.635)

Given the above this will give you bolt clerance of 1mm or 0.042" which is planty. The clerance with M12 bolt is 2mm 0r 0.0815".

Hope this helps
