My Ride: 2001 BMW 330xi
Question new wheels

hey guys, first post on here!
i have a stupid question for all of you.. my brother owned a 2003 audi a4 a few years back, bought some nice rims for it and recently got rid of it, kept the wheels but they don't fit his new car. now i drive an '01 bmw 330xi and i was wondering if it was possible for his old wheels to fit onto my new car? i don't really know the specs of the old wheels or anything but i know that wheel size and dimensions are very sensitive. if anyone has experience this or knows the answer please feel free to chime in!

thanks

They won't work unless you run an adapter from 5x112 to 5x120 which is usually cost and size (your wheels stick out too far) prohibitive.
