I bought a 330xi(sport package) in Jan, and with it I bought the wheels and tires that would go on a 330i with the sport package which I assume have a different offset(the Xi comes with 205/50/17 all around and the 330i has 225/45/17 up front and 245/40/17 in the rear). I talked to the service department after reading some articles here and they basically said they'd have no clue whether the tires would fit. I then taked to the sales person who sold me the car and he told me we'd probably have no problem...
Does this sound right to you guys? If the wheels DO fit will it wear out the wheel bearings as i've seen reference to? I appreciate any advice you can give.
