Can't Get A Straight Answer...

I have a '06 325xi, and I have an opportunity to pick up a set of 17" wheels and tires from a 535i. With that, the new setup will be a little taller at 225/55/17 and a 30mm offset. Will there be any rubbing concerns with running the new set? Thanks in advance.

you may rub in the front, but even if you don't it's going to look retarded

Sorry... I know your question was only "will they fit"... but ya, sort of what He said. Sidewall ratio is way too high.
