Will 16" wheels fit my 330xi?

Hi,

I got a 330xi 2001 and it came with 17" wheels. I'm getting ready for winter and would like to use my BMW stock 16" wheels with 205-50-16 tires, will they do? If not, what are my options!

Thanks...
Sergio

most 16" wheels will not clear the 330s brakes. gary @ tirerack does know of at least one set of 16s that do clear them though...

Yep, sure do. The only one we've found to fit so far is the ATI Type 5. Check back with me early September for winter tire/wheel packages...and use 205/55R16 as the correct tire size.
