5x120 vs. 4x100 = No they won't fit.

Only e30 m3s wheels may work, as they are 5x120 unlike all non-ms e30.

The rims are 5x120, tire size is 225 50 15... so would the guy be wrong saying there E30 rims when there possibly E34 rims?

One has 4 bolts, and the other 5...Unless he had an E30 with 5 bolt swap, there would have been a "slight" fitment issue...

The profile can only be lower or higher...as it is from the side! If front and rear tires are not the same size (overall diameter) it will cause problems with traction...
