My Ride: '04 325i
Exclamation 325i kosei k1 stock tires??

Can I replace my 325i's OEM 16" wheels with some 16" x 7 Kosei k1s from tirerack without buying new tires? My current tire size is 205/5/16.

(Sorry if this is a really stupid question, I know nothing about tire sizing and need some cheap track wheels )

205/55?

they should fit, but you probably want new tires, do yourself a favor and jump up to 17s. I ran 17x8.5 K1's on 245/40/17, miss the wheels and tires more than the car.
