Question Winter tire question..

I was just wondering if the "Fox Evo6 16" x 7" will fit in a 2002 330ci with sport package.

I saw on Tire Rack that the recommended winter tire size for my car is 205/55-16 which this rims have. However when reading around, a couple people mentioned that they must clear the rotors. Does anyone know if these "Fox Evo6 16" x 7" will do so?

Thanks,

Mj

Correct. In years past there was just one or two wheels that cleared the brakes on the 330. We currently have no 16" wheel styles that will fit them.

17x7.5 et20 with 205/50R17 will fit. I run 17x7 (BMW style 73's) with 205/50R17 for my winter setup.
