Help me out ,I recently purchased a 2007,525i.I live in Toronto Canada.I needed a set of winter tires , so I picked up wheels style 50
detail as follows;
Name Radial Spoke Style 50
Rim Type Cast Alloy
Rim Size 16 x 7.0 inches

Tire Size 225/55R-16

I have called at least 5 different service advisers at 5 dealers ,all are telling me that 16" are not compatible with 2007,525i.( BMW website does show 16" as available size for 525i.).
Does 16" wheels clear calipers?
Thanks
:dunno:

check tire placard on door jamb. if 16inch listed there...should be good. if not test fit it on one.

ok...that is just odd.

according to manual shows 225/55R16 95H

so you should be good to go. i presume the rims you have are of proper offset? Rim size is not the only factor that impacts proper fitment.

No placard on door Jamb
