Will 2002 16" wheel/tire fit as a spare on an E90

Does anyone know if a 16" wheel off a 2002 325i will fit well enough to serve as a spare on a E90? I think the only possible problem would be the brake calipers clearing.

It will only be of use for a rear wheel spare. The E46 standard 16" wheel will foul the front brake discs on the E90.

Thanks! I was afraid that would be the case.

Actually, I think it should fit fine, on a 325, not a 330. 330s require 17" minimum, the 325 requires 16" minimum.

I have actually tried fitting standard E46 16" wheels to see how the E90 would ride on non-runflat tyres. However, this was not possible as the E46 standard 16" wheel fouls the front brake disc on the E90.

A standard E46 16" wheel will therefore only be good as a spare for the rear on an E90.

If the 330 brakes are larger, it might be the case that it'd fit on a 325i in front, also. Bridger, did you try it on a 325 or 330?
