Would my E46 wheels fit an E90 328i xDrive?

I'm looking to sell my wheels and tires to my Aunt who recently acquired a BMW and is looking for a Winter wheel/tire setup.

My car is an E46 2004 330ci.

Her car is an E90 2009 328i xDrive (4-door).

The wheels/tires I have are:

Original BMW 17x8 steel wheels
205/50/R17 Pirelli 210 snowsport tires
47mm offset I believe, but am not 100% sure

-

Any thoughts on whether or not they'd fit with any issues? Would they clear the brakes okay? Suspension components? Driveline components (remember, it's an xDrive)? Fenders?

Any thoughts would be much appreciated! Thank you!

Your aunt? You could take 15 mins to jack up the two vehicles and swap front tires. Then come back and post in both forums.

Yes, my Aunt who lives a 4 hour drive away from me. I mentioned that in my thread on e90post but I forgot to mention that here.

Don't you think if I needed to ask I had a reason to not be able to test fit them myself, though? Come on, I'm not that lazy!

Anyway, I ended up talking to the guys at e90post who confirmed they would fit so all is well.

When you fit them can you post a pic of the e90 with them?

I can take a picture next time I'm down in Toronto for sure! Although that may be about 4 to 6 weeks from now.

Glad it worked out for you...and that, unlike so many others (maybe they are the kind that too often post with questions when the least bit of effort would yield answers), you came back to give us the answer.

Thanks. I feel your pain on that, especially after having spent so many years on NASIOC (you think it's bad here? Seriously try lasting one minute reading General on NASIOC...), although my OP made me come across like one of those posters if you didn't know my Aunt's car wasn't close by.

And why of course! I hate searching for an old thread and finding one that slowly died unanswered.

One day a Fanatic will search for this thread and thank me! (Or so I like to think... )

Even in "answered" threads, most people neglect to go back to their oiriginal post and edit with the correct answer.

Sure, it is nice to have the answer in a thread, but it can be a bit aggravating to have to scroll through 5 pages of "me too" or wrong info to find what "might" be the correct solution to the question.
