FS: 16" Dunlop Run-flat Winter Sport Snow Tires

Hello, I'm an idiot. I purchased a set of winter tires on Craigslist today and they don't fit.

I have a 2004 330xi with 17" wheels and I did a bit of research and thought I could put 16" wheels on them (and isn't it sometimes recommended to go down a size for winter tires?) Apparently I didn't do enough research, because my brakes are too big for these tires, they don't fit

They are Dunlop Run-flat Winter Sport Snow tires, 205/55/R16 mounted on 16" BMW light-alloy wheels (styling 156). I understand these wheels are OEM for 2006 325i/325xi. The wheels (and tires) were purchased new from Rasmussen BMW in Portland, OR for just over $2,000 in December 2007. Selling now for $899.

These are run-flat tires with TPMS sensors, 91H rated.

I was so excited to install these tires before the next storm hit, and I'm crushed they didn't work out (and feeling a bit sheepish for not doing my homework before hand.)

Please let me know if you're interested.
