513m Wheels on e82

So I'm planning on changing my 1er's wheels pretty soon and have done my fare share or research, I looked at VMR as well as Breyton but I never got over 513m wheels as they look amazing. From what I understood they wont fit measuring at 18x9.0 Front (ET29) 18x10.0 Rear (ET40).
So today my friend sends me a link http://https://europeanautosource.co...ech-sport.html and from what I see its the 513m wheels on a 1 series. Im a total noob at wheel fitment and all but any idea on how I'm able to get them on my ride, as in set up and all. I'm gonna be running a stock suspension.

Jesus, that looks bad. Wheels themselves are great, but that poor thing is just awful to look at. Wheels poke too much and tires are very stretched. Very bad fitment.

Check out Apex if you are looking for a relatively cheap lightweight set of wheels.

Didn't realize any of what you guys said. My thought was how can I fit them, but they poke out and it's simply a bad fitment, I believe for now I shall stick to my stock wheels and in time decide what I get.

Best bet if you're hung up on the looks, which I get: its personal, would be to try to find a replica wheel which looks somewhat similar in 8" width 45ish offset and run it square. Then you'll be able to appropriately tire the thing.

Thanks for the share, great to see them installed on a 1. I'm also hung up on these wheels as they are forged and lighter than Apex. 18" 513M, front = 8.92kg (19.6lbs) 9JX18 ET:29, rear = 9.44kg (20.8lbs) 10JX18 ET:40. As far as the poking out, I think they would be perfect for a 1M conversion.
