E90 Snows -17" Borbet wheels or E39 wheels?

Hi ~

I am trying to figure out if my old rims can be used as snows on my 2011 335i xDrive with M Sports package

Option 1: Set Borbet 17x8". 5 lugs, 120mm x +13mm backspace
Option 2: Set of E39 BBS Style 5. 17x8". 5 lugs, offset 20mm
Option 3: Set of Borbet 16x7.5", 5 lugs. From the same E39 above

Anyone have similar experience or feedback?

Thx!

option 3 wont fit.

not all 17s will clear the brakes on a 335. you'll need to test fit.
also you'll have to live with a warning gong and an error message on the dash if you dont put sensors into your winter setup.
