The offset of those radial wheels are 41mm for all four tires.

The front radial wheels would fit fine since the M Coupe front wheels have a 41mm offset as well.

The rear is where you might have problems.

The M Coupe rear offset is 8mm whereas the offset of the radial wheel is 41mm. You've got a difference of 33mm.

What you would need is a 33mm spacer between the wheel and hub to make that rear radial wheel fit the M Coupe.

Also, you would also need to get longer bolts as well.

You can get the spacers and bolts through BMP, but the cost might be more than you might want to spend. But it is possible.
