Newbie Tire & Wheel help

Just picked up my CPO 2008 335i w/ 6spd / Sports / Premium / Cold & NAV. Although I intended to purchase an xi, I couldnt pass this car up due to its condition as well as having all the options I was looking for (except the NAV).

That said, I'm already looking for winter wheels and tires as the low profile sport 18's definitely wont cut it during NY winters. As the OEM wheels (162's) on the car are staggerd 18's with 34 (frnt) & 37 (rear) offsets, I was wondering whether OEM 17's (159s) with a 34 offset (front & rear) would work WITHOUT spacers?

What winter wheel & tire setups are recommneded for the 335i with the Sport suspension? Any and all help is appreciated...

Thanks

Yes, those will fit without spacers.

In fact all non-m OEM E9x 17" to 19" wheels will fit your car.
