Will x5 tires fit on my x3?

I found a nice set of wheels with rims. They are for an x5 but mine is an x3. My tires are 235/55 r17 h99 and the ones I'm looking at buying are 235/65 r17 h99. Will they work? The guy selling his says they were the stock rims and tires

The tyres have the same rolling radius - only the rims to worry about. E53 rims no issue but later X5 maybe an issue with offset and the centre hole but that tyres size is likely to be E53 in any case.

I'm pretty sure those X5 tires are about 1-1/2" larger in diameter. You may have some rubbing. Not sure those will fit... I'm using 225/65 r17 for winter and I experience some slight rubbing if the steering wheel is fully locked in a turn.

The rims are fine, but unfortunately the tires are too tall for the X3. They are 1.8" taller. Revs/mile would be about 7% less which is a bit too much even if they didn't rub.
