Anyway, the 550i I found has 225/50R17. Is that the base model and standard rim? I was under the impression that 550i comes with 18" standard, am I incorrect?

Yes it is the base and standard rim for 550i. For a certain time I used size 245/40/18 all around and it lacked a lot of grip. Now I have 255 at the front 285 at the back and its much much better.
so with the 225/50/17 I think it will be even worse, anyone has experienced this?
