E46 XI fitment

Hey guys,

I have the opportunity to purchase a set of Style 42 17" wheels/tires pulled off a E38 530.

See here: http://lincoln.craigslist.org/pts/3577524659.html

17" x 8" - 5x120mm lug - 235/45r17 tire size

I've searched all day and haven't found a solid yes or no answer. i can run the numbers and they make sense, but I'm relying on the E46F community experience to help me on this one.

I know I'll need hubcentric rings to adapt the hub bore, and I know the offset is such that the rubber will stick out a bit past the fenders (ET20), but my main question is below.

Will they rub?

I would like to mount them on my stock 2002 325xi. Stock suspension, and no rolled fenders.

I've seen plenty of photos of this style on the E46, but I can't tell the exact tire size or whether the fenders have been rolled.

I am in your debt.
