Problem Finding Tires for My 17" Wheels

Hi there,

Im new to the forum so this is my first post/thread here

A month ago I got my F30 - 2012 and it has the summer tires, now it's time to change find the ones for winter but I am having a big problem finding the right tires for my BMW in my country & in the region too.

These are the dimensions recommended for my F30 (current summer tires):

255/45 R17 98W - Rear Ones
225/50 R17 94W - Front Ones

The issue is with the front ones, I cannot find them anywhere and at all the tire centers are requiring me to change my wheels to 16 in order to find them, I am not a tire expert so I want to know your opinion - what would you suggest me to do, can I put some similar tires for 17" or do I have to switch them to 16"?
