I have winter tires on right now on my 540i (235/45/17).
Is it safe to put 255/40/17 in the back? I know some 540s have these in the rear...not sure what my rim width is :confused:

I think that is the size if you have staggered wheels. If not you go with the same all around.

235/45/17 - 7.5" to 9" wide wheel
255/40/17 - 8.5" to 10" wide wheel

I had the same size winter tires (235/45/17).
On Friday I had new tires placed on my rims Front 235/45/17
Rear 255/40/17
All four of my rims are the same size 8x17

How can I check what my rim with is, doe it say anywhere on the car/rim?!

ALso, you sure it's ok to run 255/40 on 8x17? thought one of the posts said 255/40/17 - 8.5" to 10" wide wheel

Yes you can use a 255 on an 8" wide wheel. 1/2" an inch isn't going to make a difference.
