1. Search next time please. Every question you need to know has already been answered, and then some, on this forum.
2. Yes, that wheel size will fit only if the offset is correct and bolt pattern is correct.

Hmm, with an offset like that, you will probably run into clearance problems with the front struts. You would probably need some spacers, and make sure you don't run a tire that is too wide. That fitment will be very aggressive, but with the right spacers and tires, it could look nice.

5mm spacers all around would make a pretty nice fitment and will guarantee you won't rub on the struts. You probably won't without any spacers though. A member here is using a 9.5" wide front with an offset of +45 and he does not rub on OEM struts.

having an xi gives you more choices with tire/rim setups. why? b/c our xi's have a 1 inch body lift from the factory. so lowering your car 1 inch will put it at the stock height of a reg 330i. A 330i sport has an even lower stance. think that should answer everything you wanted to know about your xi concerns
