Will these wheels & snow tires fit my 325i?

I own a 2005 325i with 205/50 R17 winter tires, on 5 spoke mags. The tires are too used to go through this winter. My friend had a 2000 323i and I can buy his almost brand new 195/65 R15 s on BMW mags. We checked the tires side buy side and all looks the same height. Will the 195/65 R15s fit, please?

Thanks for your time......

To clarify re the above question; are the 15" mags' enterior wide enough in diameter to fit over the front assembly (calipers, rotors, etc)?

oh shit, i'm not sure about that...15's are pretty small.

i know they would fit in the wheelwell but not sure about the caliper clearance...

I would think if the offset and bolt pattern is the same, then it would be fine.

Thanks again for your help, but the 15" wheels wouldn't clear the front calipers, so they didn't fit.
