16 Wheels on a E90?

Hi, I'm trying to determine if a set of 16x7.5 inch AT Italia M-Contour replicas will fit on a 2011 328i Convertible with M Sport package. I have had the wheels on both a '98 323is and a '04 330ci ZHP with no problems, although the brake clearance was close on the ZHP.

Would like to put these wheels on an E90 if they'll fit. Any guidance is appreciated.

Thanks,

Mark

Whether or not they'll clear the brakes is entirely dependent on the offset which you haven't posted, so there's no way to tell.

If it's anywhere around ET30-38 it'll be fine. My e90 came stock with the 16" 156-style wheels (16x7, et34).

It might fit on a 325i or 328i, not 330i or 355i.

330, 335 will not clear 16 inch wheels, 325 and 328 do.
