FYI you can get 16" rims as well, so dont limit urself to 17s unless u want to.
also Tire World in brampton (on melanie drive) is the cheapest place around.

There are very few 16'' wheels that will clear the brakes on a e46 330 or e36 m3.

In any case, the Semperits are my budget choice of the year. Likely picking up a set for my new beater and my mom's E46.
I went to bed early on Friday to wake up early to get my winters installed sat morning. I ended up with Dunlop DS-2s installed for $550 tax in.

They suck balls in the wet, if only i had seen your post earlier i would have went with the Semperits.

Rotors on an e46 330 are 325x25 an e39 530 are 324x30.

Regardless im not sure what works or doesn't work on a 5series. But it's a known fact many 16'' wheels don't clear 330 or e36 m3 brakes

530s are easier to fit 16s on despite similar rotors because the wheel offset is lower. With most designs, this gives a bit more space.
