I think a 215 size tire is weird on an e46. I think they came on some e39's.

Yes. 225/45/17 is the tire you want. If i was buying a new all season tire, i would go for the Nokian WR or WRG2. They seem to be most geared towards snow of any all-season tire. I have heard they have low-rolling resistance for good gas mileage, destroy the snow, and last a long time.
