Help with Winter Tires!!!

I have 06 330i and I found winter package in good price but their size 225 / 50/17 Center Bore is 72.5mm. Offset is 20mm. Do you think it will rub on the turns. Or i should look for different deal.
Thank YOu

thats the size for a 5 series. You want to look into 225/45/17 or even 205/50/17
