Real M wheels on a non-m coupe?

Ive searched, and found a couple of pix of a silver e46... from the looks i think it can look good but different tire sizes are going to be needed. im just curious if anyone has rocked any of the m "fitted" wheels and pulled it off nicely? Is this the only guy that has attempted? I couldnt find any other pix? from the looks the rear wheel sticks out pass the fender about 10-15mm... i know its not everyones fancy, but i plan to do some different things... hopefully

If I recall correctly, this person sold those wheels after just a few weeks of having them on his car (probably because they rubbed on every little bump in the road).

You can run M wheels on a non-m car ONLY if you switch the rear tires to 245 instead of the stock 255 width. Otherwise you'll rub.

Looks really good IMHO
