Hey everyone... i got a great deal on Blizzaks from TireRack... $65 for the 245/40/17... i know that the std size is 235/45/17... but using the tire calculators and talking to my mechanic - he assured me the 245/40s would fit no problem...

in any case, I installed them this evening and they fit fine with no rubbing in the wheel wells at all..

Just thought I'd share with all the E39 drivers out there...

PS - i bought these tires a few years ago for my E36 and they were alot more expensive but amazing in the snow.... 3 to 4 inches of unplowed snow -never posed a problem... i want to say that i had better traction with these than the Michelin Cross Terrain SUV tires on my 4Runner.
