What size wheels fit?



hi everyone, i just bought a 1995 BMW M3 coupe and i need to buy winter. I have Viking winter tires at home with size 205/55/R16. I was wondering if i can buy rims to match these tires, like steelies, or do i have to buy brand new rims+tires? Will 16" M3 throwing star replica wheel fit the car?

thanks
derek

A list I compiled of the very few 16" rims which clear the front calipers:

Mille Miglia Spider
Mille Migle MM-112
AT Italia Type 5 (Contour reps)
ASA JH3

There are probably one or two others, but these are the most common. The ASA is the only one still produced, you can find it at Tirerack. I bought my 16" Contours from a guy on Bimmerforums, and there is at least one other set of them still for sale right now. Check over there.
