Hi I have a 2001 BMW 330Ci, and I am looking to get some new rims on it, but I am so clueless when it comes to the world of rims. I have the stock sport package 17" M style wheels on it right now, and my tires are Bridgestone Potenza 225 45R17 91W in the front and in the back I have Bridgestone Potenza 245 40R17 91W. I am looking at rims that are 18x8 in the front and in the back are 18x9. Will these rims fit on the tires, or should I go smaller to the stock 17" size?? Please help me!!!! Thanks !!! You guys are the best!!!

So your asking if tires made for 17" wheels wil fit 18" wheels?

:idea:

No...you need tires made for 18" wheels.

Seriously mate, how can a 17'' tire fit an 18'' rim? Beside, even if you can make them fit, it will be too dangerous to drive on. And the reinforcement in them is so strong none of the machine I know can make them fit each other.
