As seen in the photo below fitment with 17s is already really tight. The barrel of a 16 is going to have issues sliding over the calipers. Long story short, you need at least 17s. You could consider it a great excuse to convert your summer wheels to winter wheels and pick up another nice set

and if you buy front + rear you come close to $2500 no ?
Many people prefer the easy of install of the front only brake upgrades. Most users go to a more aggressive pad out back to compensate for the upgrade in the front. As for our kits we currently do not offer a rear BBK using BMW performance calipers.
