I recall someone saying before to be careful swapping wheel sizes on an xdrive?
For the F45, the correct 17" wheel size is: 7,5JX17 ET:54
You should always look to match the width and offset (and tyre size) for a given diameter to maintain the same rolling circumference of a tyre.
Which 1 series is it? If a newer model (2010 ->) then the 17" is probably 7.5 rather than 7. So then you just need to be concerned about the offset and whether a different offset wheel will foul on the suspension or brake caliper.
