Is it possible to safely fit style 162 wheels with winter tires onto a '08 550i w/ Sport Package?

Yep they will fit fine with either 225/40/18 or 235/40/18. You can use the same size front and rear if you want to.

I wouldn't be so sure if those are going to 550i. Isn't that E60 and it has stock offset around 20. With spacers it will fit for sure tho.

If the specs are what he posted it will fit.

Edit- I misread the question. These are going on an e60 I thought they came off an e60.

I'm little bit skeptical of the front inner clearance. At very least wheels will be really sunken in. Also the 225/40/18 and 235/40/18 is too small tyre for the E60.
