M3 rims on an XI?

Looking to put on a set of 18 in. Style 67's (all fronts). Anyone think this is a bad idea? XI's are so sensitive when it comes to wheels, suspension, etc. Let me know what you guys think.

I know the car will never be an M, but i like the look and found a pretty good deal on a set.

having an xi has nothing to do with if its a bad idea or not. they are 18x8 et47. get yourself some 12mm spacers AT LEAST so they sit nicely with the fender. tire sizes go with 235/40/18
