My Ride: 01' 330i
Snow tire/Wheel Question. Please please please Help!

I purchased my 2001 BMW 330i w/sport package last May. They also came with 4 snow tires. The size is 205/55 R17. I don't want to buy anything nice, I just wanted to mount them on some cheap steelies for the winter time, but I cannot find anything that will work anywhere here in town. Will any other size rim fit these tires? I sincerely appreciate any help here guys. Thanks!

I just went out and found some 17 inch rims here on E46 and mounted my snows on them. I ended up paying 400 for a set of stock 17 from an 04 330 sedan. They look fine for the winter and are better than the steelies. If I am not mistaken pretty much every 17 inch BMW rim will work on the 01 330

Unfortunately we have not found any 17" steel wheels available in BMW's bolt pattern. Also 205/55R17 is pretty tall, are you sure this is the right size?

Normally they would be 205/50R17. We do have some inexpensive alloys that fit in 17"
