Will these winters fit

Hi All,

Just recently sold my 2008 135i Msport for a new 335i. I hoping to reuse my winters from the 135i.

Existing winters are 17x8 Sport Edition KM11 (Bridgestone Blizzak WS-60
225/45/17).

Will they work??

Thanks in advance!

The sizes are similar for sure.

I'd suggest test fitting and checking the clearances. The F30 uses a narrower rear wheel than the E90, very similar to the setup the E8x 1 series uses.

I had the same tires (225/45/17) from Tire Rack for my 2009 E90 335i sport. Tire Rack told me I could use the same set on my 2013 F30 335i sport. They coulda told me "no" and sold me another $1600 worth of tires, but I called them, gave them my invoice number, and they confirmed they would work on the new car. They're sitting in the basement now waiting for winter (vs. being advertised on Roundel in the for-sale section).

Thanks! Glad they will work, although I'm not overly excited to go from 19"s to 17"s...
