16s on a 330i

Recommended Posts

Will 16s go on a 330i. I'm aware that they have bigger brakes than lower models so wondered if 16s would fit or not.

I'm going to get a spare set of alloys and winter tyres later in the year and 16s would be cheaper than 17s.

Nope. Min size is 17" to fit over the calipers.

330d and 330i share the same brakes..

Style 44 wheels with 225/45/17 tyres are the cheapest combo I've seen. I have a set which I need rid of as it happens! ^_^

Ok. Thanks.

Mine currently has style 89 17s with 235/45 tyres.

My last E46 had style 46s on.

I wasn't wanting to get any right now. Spending spare cash sorting a couple of small body work issues out.

However, just out of interest how much do a decent set of 17s without tyres go for these days?

No sure, most of the style 44's I've seen range between £100-150 WITH tyres!

On the other end you can get BBS 17" BMW wheels which are around £750 without tyres.

On a related note, does anyone know which steel wheels will fit the 330ci? Was thinking about getting a set for winter rather than alloys.

Don't think there are any tbh. Most of the OEM steel wheels I've seen are 16"

The 17" out there are usually banded steels from space saver rims.

With the average price of Style 44s and the like, its not worth it for a spare set imo.

Should do, although not 100% sure about the offset..

But for a set of 4 it'd be cheaper to get a set of Style 44's? You should be able to get them with tyres for £100-150 and if you wanted to, sell the tyres and put that difference into buying winter tyres etc..

I do like steels tbh. :)

According to willtheyfit - that offset should be fine with a 225/45/17 tyre!
