OP did you have to use spacers on the front with the e46 Wheels? I have a set of e46 (Style 119) that I have run on my e90 and the fronts looked so close to the strut that I got some spacers. The offest is 34 for my e90 wheels and 47 for the e46 wheels. Both sets are 17x8.
The E82 uses 47mm offset just like the E46, so this wasn't an issue for me.

Your dash display wouldn't indicate "inactive" unless you had the 'direct' type TPMS, so your snow wheels are 'sans' TPMS. Now an expensive proposition to dismount the tires, install the TPMS, remount and rebalance them!
My brother's has a close friend that works in a repair shop. I can likely get the installation done for nothing. Just have to shell out ~$200 for the sensors.
