It's interesting that Tire Rack lists 245/40/18 as the OEM size for my vehicle, but I purchased it with 225/50/17 all season tires on Style 138s, which, I'm pretty sure are the stock rims that came with the '07 530xi. That's why I thought I could go with a lower profile than I already have for winter tires.
