What size wheels do I need for 205/55/R16 snow tires for ZHP?
 
So I bought a winter wheel/tire set from someone with a non ZHP E46 coupe - BBS wheels and Dunlop Pilot Winter Sport 3Ds. The tires are still great, but when I went to install the wheels, I found out they don't fit onto my ZHP hubs. What size wheels should I now be looking for?

They should fit if they are off an E46. No difference in hub size or PCD in the E46 range.

Even E36 wheels will fit....

16s on a 330, only a few select rims clear calipers. Hubs are not your problem. Easiest solution... 17s.

BMW 16s will not fit over zhp/330 calipers

Thanks guys, I'm looking at some 17s now. What sort of offset can I work with? Stock is 50 rear, 47 front.

Depends on width, assuming no more than 8" wide I'm sure 30-42ish would work. Can go higher and run spacers, don't want to go much lower especially in the front, fender clearance becomes an issue.

READ THREADS, BEEN COVERED A BILLION TIMES. Research dude.

I've spent all afternoon researching, it's not very clear...

That's because you can't determine brake clearance by looking at the wheel specs. The specs do not measure brake caliper clearance. Aftermarket sellers like us have to physically test fit the different styles of wheels to determine if they will actually fit.

We have a complete list of which wheels we sell that fit listed here :
