E60 166M Wheels fit

Hi,

looking at some options for second hand OEM wheels for my winter set.

Can someone confirm that use of E60 M5 166M rims on F80 is not going to work:
19 x 8.5 +12 in the front 255-35-19 tire
19 x 9.5 +28 in the rear 255-35-19 tire

The online calculator says:
New front wheel will have an inner rim which is 23.4mm further away from the suspension strut. The outer rim will poke out 10.7mm more than before.
New rear wheel will have an inner rim which is 18.4mm further away from the suspension strut. The outer rim will poke out 5.6mm more than before.

My assumption is that it might be too aggressive offset in front, and maybe even in the back giving only 255 width of the rear tire.

Anyone cares to comment?
And yes, I am totally new in the wheels fitment area...
