Please double check my spacer spec


The previous owner of my E90 had an E46 based winter package which he sold with the car. At first I didn't realize it was an E46 package but came to this realization shortly after completing the purchase.

I can't be certain if he was able to just bolt this up and go, whether he never tried it, or whether he knew right off the bat that the offsets didn't match and maybe they don't work at all.

From everything I can tell, I should be able to fit this package just fine using 13mm spacers. I could maybe go a little larger, but ~13mm should "correct" the incorrect offset and put me in an "OE fit" situation.

Please confirm:
The E90 wheels which came with the car:
BMW style 160
8Jx17 ET 34
225/45 R17

The E46 wheels with winter tires for which I'll require spacers:
BMW style 96
8Jx17 ET 47
225/45 R17
