So what tire brands work? I've never heard of the tire itself being the deciding factor.... Usually it's the offset of the wheel. I don't know what offsets the 185's have, but can anyone else chime in?

Will a 245 tire even fit on the 185 rim? That rim is only 8" wide (17x8, ET34).

FWIW stock on that rim is 225/45/17. I have those as a winter setup on my '07 335i E93

Should be fine, but why deviate from stock 225?
