e46's take around 40 offset, e39s came with around 20. Hence, the wheels will stick out of by 20mm. I am just giving you some ballpark numbers, you will have to check with the exact spec of the wheel.
I did find out that the offset of the e39 wheel is like you said, 20. Mine is 40 stock. So if i get the hubcentric adapters, will this work? How can i check for sure??
