z3M wheels on an e46?

So what's the consensus on fitting 17x7.5, 17x9 Z3M wheels onto an e46? Or can anyone tell me the offsets of the Z wheels?

So they don't stick out past the fender lips? Like if the car is lowered will the tire edge go up inside the fender or hit it? ( if that makes sense )
Anybody have a picture?

I think I found the offsets are 17x7.5+41, and 17x9+8..

search man, if you do have a lead on a set. And choose not to buy them, I will buy them.

+8 in the rear is really aggressive but it would badass if you pull it off.
