Did you check the offset and lug spacing?

The fronts should be fine but the rears will be too aggressive.

Ignoring the unknown offsets, you may still run into an issue... In my experience with BMW wheels, the front wheels may not clear the brake calipers.
BMWs have slimmer (floating) caliper brake design while the LS has a monoblock (thicker brake caliper) setup.
If they do clear, and the offsets are decent, you'll need hubcenteric rings and you should be good to go.

ive had great luck with Bmw wheels on my corvettes , but there is some truth to this

On some bmw wheels there is literally no backpad , or disk , on the rear wheels , its just flat , meaning it wont clear most brakes especially larger ones like we have

They are also more aggressive in offsets then most other vehicles , even for my vette they were very aggressive

I know a guy recently who got the 21" 7 series wheels and even with 22mm offset, which is typically ideal for 8-9 inch wheels would not clear the caliper. He decided not to run spacers so he sent them back and got his money back.

You could cut the rims off the wheel and try to weld them, I suppose. As far as the rest of the wheel, you’d probably need to look at their M-line that have larger rotors and calipers.
