Will 18" E46 M3 wheels fit?

I've got a set of stock 18" E46 M3 wheels that I use now for winter tires. Will these fit the 1M?

I was wondering the same for a set of track tires on 18" rims. I think they should work fine.

You can't fit the staggered. But if you can get 4 front wheels they fit.

Search guys, people have done this wheel swap since day 1

:edit:

ohh nvm I didn't see 1M. Yeah they should fit

I don't see how 4 front wheels could possibly work?

Here are the specs for the e46 wheels:
-18x8 et47 rears 18x9 et26.

and for the 1M

-19x9 +31 rears 19x10 +25

Seems like you would need spacers?

I'll try them later in the week when it is cooler. Seems to me the rears would fit w/o spacers the offset is pretty close.
I have a set left from my e46 M3.
