Default Another wheel fitment example

I'm looking for a set of winter wheels and found some style 262's and wondering if they would fit my 535xi. Based on my current style 277's I don't think this should be a problem. I looked at willtheyfit.com and it seemed to be okay but since you guys are more experts at this than me, thought I would throw it your way.

If the Style 262s are staggered, you may have a problem since the rolling circumference needs to be the same on all four corners on a AWD car. What tires are you planning to use?

Fair point, the seller says they aren't staggered but the online guide says they should be, if staggered I won't bother. They have Goodyear winter runflats on them that I will be most likely replacing with Michelin X-ice's at 205/50/17

Just a note of caution... a 205 tire may be too narrow for the weight of a 535 wagon. Check the load range of the tire. Generally, 225s are the narrowest you can go on an E60.

Also found some Style 159's from a 335i with 225/45/17 winters on them that I'll look into. Load rating should be fine. Offset is 34 but I think that should be okay. They'll stick out a centimeter more than my current ones but think that should be okay.
