and how much head room there is for a taller tire.
You are lucky i guess, my xi has the bigger brakes option, so when i went to install a set of 16" steel wheels a friend had sold me this summer for dirt cheap i soon realized they did'nt fit because of the calipers, i was surprised, he had a 2008 328 x drive, oh well

i say you are lucky because 16" are way cheaper than the 17" here
