Legit rim size/offsets for 2011 328ix

Looking to find out the range of rim sizes and the rim offset for a 2011 328ix I bought a couple weeks ago. I need a set of rims for snow tires.

Thanks

16in - 20in diameter (15in is too small to clear brakes, 21in is too large to fit a 30-series tire)
7in - 9in width (I'm not sure 6in width will have the right load rating, 10in is too wide for the front)
32mm - 40mm offset (balance with width to prevent outboard scrub issues)

Try this, and see if it helps:

Determine the original wheel style, and tire size that came on your vehicle from the factory.

Go to http://felgenkatalog.auto-treff.com/ and pick the tire size that you determined, in the "Bereifung" selection box in the upper left part of the screen.

Scroll down on the left pane, and select your wheel style that came with your vehicle from the factory. Look at the specs for offset, etc., and make a note of it.

Pick other styles, and make a list with matching specs.

I am not sure what to tell you w/r/t alternate diameters (i.e. 16" vs 17" vs 18", etc.) The type of suspension may make a difference, too.

HTH a little, at least.

Don

EDIT: On second glance, try the "Baureihe" selection box on the above site and pick your vehicle. It may provide wheels with more diameter selections. Just a thought.

Thanks for the link above. I'll check it out.

I was told by a dealer that only the 320i can use 16" rims because the brake calipers are smaller on the 320i(x) vs. the 328ix. They said I'm stuck using 17" or 18" rims.
