Can I put 225 45 17 tires on
Own a 2006 BMW 325xi and the came with 205 55 16 on it originally. Can I
put the larger sized wheel on with new rims if the car came with the smaller
The size you want to use was used on the 330i model. So yes you can use them. They were a larger size due to clearing the bigger brakes used on the 330's.
Follow up question: So it's okay to change the rim and tire to the larger 17s when the car originally came with the 16s?
