No; the offset is too low.

Also, your English needs work. The correct wording would have been "Do these rims..."

I've yet to hear a non-native English speaker use "does" like that.

If English isn't his first and only language, I apologize. That use of "does" is a common thing of lazier Americans who didn't bother to pay attention in English class. Another common word that is never conjugated is the verb "see" which is used as "seen" and an example would be "I seen him stealing my fried chicken off my plate."

My most sincere apologies in that case.

Correct offset for that wheel size is 35-50mm. Less than that and you start getting more and more rubbing of the tire on the fender.

They can fit. Are they a direct fit? No.

Will require rolled fenders and some negative camber. Depends on the look you are going after, and how much work you want to put in to fit them.

You also needs to realize that the hub bore of the e39 is 74.1mm and the e46 is 72.6mm. You're going to need hub centric spacers on top of assuring the offsets are correct.
