Tired of dad bashing up my 17's! Will this 16" option work? 325it Sport Pkg

My dad has a 2005 325it Sport Package. He messed up the original 17" wheels & needed tires so I lent him my set of 17's. Now they're all curbed up as well I have another set of BMW Style 268s which measure 16x7 ET31. I know I can run 225/50/16s, but I'd like the most protection from curbs as possible for his driving style. Can I get away with 245/50/16s without rubbing? Car is all stock.

You have the right idea, by putting the fattest rubber you can find on a 7" wheel, this will protect the rim. A 245/50 16 is slightly tall at 25.7 but as long as you're buying all 4 it will work ok.

Any more opinions on a possible rubbing issue with 16x7 ET31 & 245/50/16?
