Mein Auto: '14 335i
Will 17" style 393 wheel fit 2013 335i?

I would like to find style 393 wheels for winter tires but am a little concerned if they will fit.
Will the style 393 wheel fit a 2013 335i that came with 18" wheels?
TIA

I know that 335i M Sport has the largest brakes. Next are 328i M Sport , which is the same as the 335I.

However, I don't know the answer to your question. Also see how close the brakes get to your wheel.

Are you sure about this?

It would be the first time that BMW has varied brake size based on package options on non M car three series cars. They have previously always been the same within a given engine size for North American models. IE: all 335i cars have the same brakes, all 328i cars have the same brakes, etc.

I'm an idiot, listen to Gary.

My info is based on unreliable observation and a post on another BMW forum. I tried to see, looking at cars on the street, the gap between the wheel and the brakes.

incorrect.

the only difference with the brakes on a us market base/modern/luxury/sport 335i and an Msport 335i is the pad compound.

the same for the 328i, same brakes (calipers, rotors) across all lines, with the M sport getting different pad compound.

MY 2014 will have a factory option for upgraded brakes, which is essentially the current dealer/port upgrade. but the stock brakes the same same (aside from pad compound) across a model and lines.

Bump, looking to buy 393 set for 335i sport line, but worried that the front brake rotors and/or calipers clearance might be an issue.
Anyone has an oem 17inch set mounted on 335i sport line?

(Sorry for the double post, android crap out on me)

UPDATE: i did end up buying 393 set - they do fit.
