Style 156 for winter setup possible on f30?

All,

I've got a set of style 156s with blizzaks on them that I currently use in my winter setup on my e90...

Anyone know if 16" wheels will fit on the f30? Sucks but when it snows, it snows.

I would prefer not to have to buy new wheels and tires for the f30.

For a 335i, 16s are definitely not going to work. The 328i might be able to fit 16s, but it would be very close and would probably need a test fitment to be sure.

Ay, that's what I was afraid of. Guess I'll be buying a new set of winter wheels and rubbers.

You'll probably need new tires at the minimum. Believe the f30 has larger rolling diameter tires.

How does your RWD with snows do in Omaha? Just curious because I am thinking about going RWD this time if I order an F31. I have always had FWD or AWD so I am a little nervous cuz all of the snow we get around here.

I didn't switch this last winter and I did fine with summer performance tires on.

Snows will overcome most any snow, I'd be more concerned about your car becoming a snow plow than your tires not gripping with some good snows.
