OEM 19" M3 wheels on non-M e46 sedan

Ok so I have read so many forums but I get a 50/50 answer about it. I want to know does the 19" OEM M3 Rims fit a 4 door E46 sedan? I don't want to do any mods on the car like fender rolling the back or buy suspension the car comes with factory non sport supension. The other forums talk about e46 coupes but I want to know for a 4-door E46 sedan. So does anyone know the answer to this?

Please help!

Thanks

Hell no. Rears will stick out a noticeable amount, potentially rubbing if your suspension is soft. Only option is to run 4 front wheels.

4 fronts now that would be tricky to find since most of the people selling it will not part their wheels. Any idea how much it would be to roll your back fenders?

Sedan's have even less room than coupes, you will need to a serious stretch and a stiffer suspension with rolled and/or shaved fender lips in order to run them. It won't happen.

I found this seller off eBay a few weeks back, selling replicas for non-Ms:
