Here in Canada the 155's are included in the Sport package only on the entry level 323i which has a 2.5 litre 170hp inline 6.
The tires are the 225/50R16 performance RE050 runflats.
Also on the 323i without Sport package we get a style 154 16x7 double 5 spoke alloy that is not overly appealing. (they look small)
Like the 156's they roll on 205/55R16 all season EL42 runflats. (also not very appealing)
Mind you none of the runflats appeal to me, I have gone through the poor ride quality issue with runflats on my MINI.
