Hi,

I have a 325is which has currently 225/55/15 tires on it and was wondering if I could replace those with tires
of size 225/60/15 (or some other size). The reason being that there are nearly no options for tires of the original size.

Thanks very much, Claudio

205/60/15 and 225/55/15 are the two recomended sizes. They're almost the exact same outside diameter. If you don't mind the speedo being off my 1 mph you could get some 225/50/15. I'd recomend going to tirerack.com and seeing your options and avoid going to a 225/60/15 because that's going to give you a larger sidewall. If you want a cushier ride you could go that route though.
