would these fit without issue?

Hi all!
Looking into a spare winter set for the e90.
I found a set on CL with Blizzaks size 205/50/17 all 4

My car is sport package
Front - 225/45/17
Rear - 255/40/17

My concern is would there be any issues in driveability or performance?
I am not sure if the rims come with the tpms in them already but if the tires would fit my car than I would pursue more details in order to buy them.
Could there be any clearance issues having a taller profile or issues with turn radius?

thanks

205/50/17 tyre diameter is almost same as 225/45/17

225/45/17 tyre diameter 24.97 (in.)
205/50/17 tyre diameter 25.07 (in.)
0.098 (in.) 0.3% difference

So no problem.

They'll work. Narrower tires are better in snow.

Thanks guys! I did that computation above the post but still wasn't sure. I needed to hear it from people that know.

Yeah, those wheels will fit. Just as others said, it's within spec and they're a bit narrower since it's a 'winter' set.

Do you have metal valve stems or rubber valve stems. I think early 07's use ftm instead of tpms.
