will 17" bayern 5's fit 330Ci?

I heard they may not cause of (factory) caliper clearance issues. just wondering if anyone has them on their car??

I want 17's cause they are cheap and still small enough to not slow/change performance of car. Plus i just bought a sweeeeet set of yoko advan sports in 17's last summer...

I have recently bought the TSW Nogaro 17" http://www.tsw.com/productline_all.php and they are very look alike the Beyerns you are looking for. The clearance is very close but all is ok. In case you might be interested, i am selling my wheels and tires as i am going for 18's. In case you are interested, PM me. My selling price could interest you very much. plus i live in Canada and could easely set up shipping terms
Let me know.
