Hi - I am considering purchasing a set of stock 16" rims and tires for winter weather.
Will they fit my 530i non-sports pack? Mine is 225-50-17.

Thanks
Newbie.

If your car is a RWD 530 and they came from a RWD 525 you should be fine. If they came of an AWD 525xi you will need spacers.

Thanks for the quick reply.
I heard it would be safer to put on 16" (smaller) and snow tires under snowy condition for 530i RWD, vs. snow tires on 17" stock rims.
