Who thinks these will fit?

Right,i need to find a set of 17s sharpish for winter tyres,before its too late and the prices go mental
Found these M5 reps on ebay that are the correct size,but i am soo scared i get them home and they dont clear the 325d callipers

I recon they would look ok and they come under my 300 budget, as long as they fit,

They'll almost certainly fit with no probs - as 325s come on 17" in many markets anyway.

Personally I think you'd be better off with some OEM SE cast offs rather than reps - like those lovely 158s on the other thread. Get them 2nd hand off the bay.

e.g. .....

I've just bought these:

Hoping they will fit on my 335d. For 80 I'm not going to complain if they don't fit and I have to sell them on.

Going to get some Nankang SV-2 Rubber for the winter on them

This is meant to be a cheap cheap winter setup

Don't think a 16" wheel would go over the brake calipers.

16s definitely won't fit.

My 17s are very tight over the disks - any smaller wouldn't go on.

The ebay wheels didn't fit. Got myself some bmw 157 style wheels and the Nankang sv-2's

Will see how they work out for me.

In what way did they not fit - clearance over the calliper?
