Quick question, winter tire fitment
 
hi there, looking for some quick help.

i have a 2005 bmw 325i executive edition with the 17inch rims. i can get a good deal on a set of winter tires but they are a 225/60/R17. anyone know if they will rub or if they are too tall to fit? car is stock height, i'm trying to avoid buying rims because the car will rarely be driven.

thanks for your help.

Easiest way is to use this tire calculator to see if it will be the correct diameter

thanks, i know that my speedo will be a bit off but i'm ok with that. according to the tire calculator the overall diameter will be 2.6 inches over stock. i'm just wondering if the wheel wells on the 325 will accommodate the +2.6 inches.

Not even close to fitting.
