E90 wheels on F30?

Looking at the MotorTrend F30 328i road test, I noticed from the detailed specs that the brake rotor sizes are exactly the same as my E90 328i (12.3" in front and 11.8" in back). It got me thinking that I could perhaps use my current winter wheels for the new F30 I plan to purchase. Does anyone know the bolt diameter pattern, offset and center hub diameter for the F30 wheels.

This is obviously not a deal breaker on my next car purchase but it would save me some $$$ as dedicated winter wheel set up is a must for Montreal winters.

Thanks,

Same as the F10. 72.1 centre whole, 5 bolts same length and ET 34 OFF set.
Should fit right on.
My X3 35D M S port winters are 18" * 8.5" ET 35, should go straight on also.

Great post!! I still have 2 years left on my current lease (no hurry to get rid of the car) but I was wondering if my winter wheels will potentially fit on a new 328, or the new 335i in a few years. It make it so much easier to not have to mess with new wheels. I have done it on my last 3 leases!!!

Now lets just hope the tire pressure sensors don't change and I'll be set.

I too am wondering about the offsets and how different they are from the E90. I was hoping to get a set of rims/winter tires on eBay from an e90 or somewhere else reasonably priced, but looks like this may not be possible.

I guess I could just buy the winter tires and swap out them on the current 18" rims--but that quickly becomes a PITA every fall/spring.
