E46 OEM WHEELS ON E46 325i?

I'm getting oem 19s for my e46 M3 and want to know if I can use my oem 18s on my wife's 2002 e46 325i? Right now she has oem 17s with the sport suspension, but she loves the look of the M3 oems. I know the M3's front oems will fit, but I think the back will require a fender roll on the 325i. Is this correct? If this is correct, does this make sense doing, or should I just sell the oem 18s?

The backs won't fit even with a fender roll.

I have seen someone do it but the backs will rub alot, the offset is to aggressive.

If you buy 2 more fronts you can put on all fronts

Thanks, guys! I guess I'll consider all fronts. Used oem 18s are relatively cheap.
