Does anyone know if the 550 GT 20 inch sport package wheels fit on a 550i?

I would not do it. We have the 550 GT 20 inch rims and the front tires are a replacement waiting to happen (have done twice in less than 8K miles). Tiny Pot Hole, tires bubble out on the side and have to be replaced. Love the car but cannot stand the tires.

Assuming they're style 316.
I think the wheels will fit, but the tires are too tall.

Here are the sizes and offsets.
F10 20" are 20x8.5 ET33 with 245/35/20, while the GT 20" are 20x8.5 ET25 with 245/40/20 in the front. So the tires are taller and the wheel stick out 8mm more.

The rear F10 wheels are 20x9 ET44 with 275/30/20, while the GT ones are 20x10 ET41 with 275/35/20.
