The rears will be fine but I think you will have a problem with the fronts.
The wheel is 1/2" wider (13mm) than stock 135i front wheel (7 1/2").
The offset is 14 or 15 mm different so your wheels will be out that much already.
You cannot fit skinny narrow tires to the 8" wheels so any reasonable tires you install are most likely going to rub their outer edges on the front fender.
I just did a somewhat similar installation on my car but with 17" wheels.
The different offset on the fronts is your main concern.
The rears would be fine with reasonable tires.
You also need to consider the overall diameter of the tires which is most likely going to be too tall which will add to your problem.
