Found the following info on another site.......

The specifications for the X3(F25) are:

Bolt Circle: 5X120mm
Offset: 45mm
Hub centering ring: 72.47mm
However, the lug bolts are different.
The F25 uses M14x1.25 bolts, while the E83 uses M14x1.5 bolts. (Both use 17mm hex heads and straight taper seats)
Trying to use the lug bolts from a E83 could damage your hubs.

So the set of winter wheels I just ordered for my F10 550i with ET35 all round, wheel sizes 18/8.5 front 18/9 rear should fit the Xm M Sport if I want one. Great. Bolt size the same as X3 Also.

The wheel size and offset are stamped on the inside of one of the spokes. I saw it today when we were swapping wheels. I think it was 19x8.5ET26, but I don't entirely trust my memory.
