225/70/R15 with universal steel wheels?

I found set of snow tires with that size for $150 on CL and was wondering if they'll fit in my 01 325CI.

Thanks in advance.

Tire size is way too tall, 15" steel wheels will not clear the brakes. Also, keep in mind that no wheel is "universal" so stay away from any seller claiming that to be the case.

Thank you, when it comes to wheels/tires/rims I'm completely lost.

Steer clear of that setup! Definitely not recommended for your E46, as it's way too tall.

Whoops, that was a typo. Either way, it's still way too tall.
