You sure about that? I thought we had to have 18" wheels to clear the front brakes.


Good point, anyone know.

I'm also curious about this as there are a bunch of BMW 17's with snow tires available but I don't want to experiment and find out they won't fit.

They are everywhere up here. Punch 5x120 in CL and it’s all BMW 16/17/18s

I doubt 16s or 17s will clear our brakes so that leaves me with just 18s or 19s personally. Then it looks like only 5 or 7 series will have snow tires. If I can find a set of Impala wheels with snow tires cheap enough I might give up on the BMW wheel idea.
