Does E90 wheels fit F20?

Is it the same center bore and bolt spec?

But some wheels (some original ones and most aftermarket) have large enough holes for M14 lug bolts, so they could fit. Worth a try. And if they don't fit, it is not all that difficult to increase the diamater of the lug bolt holes in the wheels...

I tried a set winter wheels from my E90 LCI on a F20 5-d and they fit perfect.

Size was 18x8 ET34.
