Does 235/45/17s fit well on a 330xi. I have a 02 325xi, and I am getting 225/45s or 235/45s on 17" .

It should fit fine as the XI's are a little higher then the RWD. I have 17x7.0 so the 245 would be too wide. I think 235 is the widest for 7.0 inch as other members have told me.

What tire brand/model are you going with?

From my research Toyo F1S are great especially in rain where many are dangerous. Also heard that Nitto 555 are great dry but terrible wet.

I am getting my tires here probably.

I am buying Hamann HM3s. They are 17" by 8.5, so they told me to use 225, 45, 17 or 235, 40, 17
