based on what i've seen on this board, and assuming your sedan isn't AWD you shouldn't have an issue with the staggered wheels of the M.

No, the offset is much too aggressive for non-M vehicles. Is there a specific style you are looking for?

Might want to take a look at the new Gunmetal CSL reps:

These would look great on an AW vehicle.
