Will these fit the XI?

In the midst of aquiring winter rims for my 02 330xi.

I found a set, their 5x120, BMW.. and this is the part number.

BMW IS47 7Jx17 H2 (6750-254)


I know 16's won't work due to the brake calipers being too big. My current stock rims are 17" so no reason these wouldn't fit? Their also mounted with a set of 205/50/17 Michelin X-ice tires.

What do you mean 16's won't fit because of the brake calipers? Do you have a BBK? A friend of mine has a non sport package 325xi and it has the 16in wheels from bmw...

I may be wrong but the 330's brake size only certain 16's will fit over them.

Yea its the 330's that have the bigger calipers. Only certain 16' rims fit apparently.

If you want them, don't wait. This is a rare find and will go quick especially if the tires are in good shape. I tried buying three used snow wheel/tire combos before last winter and they sold before I could get a chance to pick them up.
