HELP will a 6 series wheel go my 325?

I am looking at a set of wheels off a 6 series that are 18x8. Part number 6758777, i dont know if they will fit or not? I see some fitment guides saying that 18x8 will work with a 225/40/18 tire? confused as all hell. It's a good buy on the rims but not if they dont work.

OK on that page they are style 118. They are 18x8 and i think a 14 offset? The factory part number is 6758777. 11.23 kg is the weight. My car is a base 2006 Convertible. Came stock with a style 45 in a 16 inch. Any other info i can give you let me know here or at bigrobtemp @ yahoo thanks

ok, that won't work. The fact that they're 18x8 is fine, but the et14 is just to little. If you bought and mounted them, the tires would stick out past the fenders and touch. You need a wheel with a minimum of about et30, but et35 to et40 would be better. There are variables, these numbers are alittle flexible but the et14 number is a no no.
