will 16 inch rims fit my 2011 328ix

Hello,
i have a 2011 bmw 328ix touring with original 17's. I'm looking to get winter rims and tires, and i'm wondering if 16 inch rims will fit, and if so, what are the parameters for the tires?

I've tried a search but i could not find anything. Your help would be appreciated.

Thanks

My 2010 328xi has 16's so they should work. I'm thinking of going to the other way 18's, but I live in Floriduh so I don't need a winter setup.

Yes, there are indeed 16" wheels that will fit this car.

We have not found any 16" wheels that fit over the brakes on the 2006 330i sedan.

But they will clear on the LCI models? I have a '10 335xi MSport sedan and would like to do the Sport Edition A7 16x7.5 with 205/55-16 tires. Will that work?

Tire rack website says I cannot downsize to 16". Any reason for that?

Yes since without ZSP all 328 (except for coupes I believe) came with 16s. 16s will fit any 328 car but not 335s due to the larger breaks.
