Can 16s fit 330XI

When I was at the dealership today picking up my car, I decided to ask about a winter whee\tire package for my 300XI. They were trying to sell me 16s. I had thought that 16s could not fit my car. I asked them. They replied that it does fit, and they showed me on their computer. I don't plan on getting 16s but am curious if it is even possible. Thanks

I'm pretty sure they were talking outta their asses, I'm pretty sure that the smallest wheel size that can on on 330i/xi's is 17s

Like the others have said, it certainly won't fit. When I mounted my 17" winter set yesterday I noticed how little space there is between the caliper and the rim.
