I'm not sure, but I wouldn't expect those to fit, or have the right bolt pattern.

Well the bolt pattern is a start, but I really dunno size wise. Also, I'm not sure the torque output of the 1.8 would take to the heavier set very well.

Should Fit Like A Glove Dude.
I Got 205/45/17 On Mine.
The 205 is Width,
45 Is The Depth (How Skinny)
Higher Number The Better
Could Get 20s On The E36 if You Wanted.
Might Be Useful To Put Wheel Spacer's Though Mate, As You Will Get A Bit Of Rub
20 mm Spacers Would Be Best, You Will Also Need Longer Bolts Aswell.
17 Should Be Ok On The Arches, Depend's How Low You Are, Nothing A little Tack Weld Can't Sort Out Mate.
It May Very Slightly Slow You Acceleration, Due To The Width, But Will Look S**t Hot.
You Did Ask!!!!

225/45 would be the correct size ... the tire size you have means the overall diameter is a whole inch larger so your speed will be way off (if you can get them on there without rubbing etc).
