335 Sport ..winter Setup..rubbing?

I did a search but maybe some expert can tell me. Will be getting my 335i soon. I have a have some m5 replicas (17x8 with 38 offset)...I think the wheel will fit according to other posts but will the existing winter rubber fit (rubbing?) ..they have 235/55/17 on them right now....any feedback is great!!

Thanks....if it doens't fit i keep seeing tirerack has 2 recommended setups...one at 205/50/17 and the other 225/45/17...do you know which will better for the car?

205's are recommended due to better traction in a lot of snow... 225's are great in slick conditions or where the snow has been compacted. This is what I've gathered from the forum so far. 225's I see as a better look but you just have to choose based on your winter driving conditions. If you get a tonne of snowfall in Calgary, perhaps the 205's are best but really I'm not sure if you'd notice that much of a difference depending on how you drive.

235/55R17 is much too tall and won't clear. If the wheels are 8" wide, you'll want to use 225/45R17 since they are too wide for 205/50R17 tires.
