325i SPORT PKG -- Winter tire option

Hi,

I just bought a set of Bridgestone Blizzak LM-22 winter tires from a garage sale (almost brand new) 205/55R16 ... my car came with 17" wheels so I will have to buy another set for the winter. Is it ok to drop from 17" to 16" ... will I have any problems with the car? This tire is a tirerack.com reccomended tire and size.

Thanks

Rob

Garage List
I think as long as the overall diameter of the tire mounted on the wheel is the same, you'lll be okay.

Aret the LM-22 the runflat or non-runflat version of the tire?

that would make a difference in what wheel you can purchase.
