Winter wheels for a 525D M sport

Hi
I am after a second set of wheels to put winter tyres on my 525D (6cyl) F11.
I currently have 19" RFT on and was looking to purchase a set of second hand F10 wheels.
I am unsure if all wheels will fit as mine is a m sport model, does this mean the brakes are larger than the SE version? If not presumably any of the F10/11 range will fit (even possibly 17" ones). If the brakes are larger does this mean i have to have the m sport 350M.
I don't like the idea of aftermarket wheels so want genuine OEM wheels.
I previously had this set up on my old 325i touring and ran winter tyres for 4+ months a year and found the difference hugely effective.
Also if anyone is thinking of upgrading their wheels please put a post me.
Thanks in advance
James

All F10/11 OEM wheels will fit your car. Only the 550i need atleast 18".

I am also looking second hand oem wheels for my 520 m-sport. Here in Finland we use studded winter tyres so 17" or 18" are best for me. Will styling 250 wheels fit for my f10?
Many sites say they fit only for f01 or f07. I don't understand why since they are 8x18 et 30, as original f10 wheels.
P.s Sorry, that I could't post new thread. Thanks for any help.

I see no reason why they shouldn't fit the f10, of course you should go with 245/45/18 instead of the f01/f07 245/50/18 tires.
