Question Will These Fit on my 318ti?

Hello,
I have a 1998 318ti and currently have Federal 205/60R15 91H and I want to put Triangle Talon Sport 215/55R16 93H. Will they fit? They are brand new with 10 miles on the tires. Please let me know. Thanks

Kristina

205/60R15 means that the tire is 205mm wide, the sidewall is 60mm tall, and the wheel it is meant to fit on is a 15inch wheel. The problem with the tires you are looking at is that they are meant to go on a 16inch wheel. So unfortunately they won't work.

Im going to be changing the rims as well. The 16" tires are mounted on FTW rims.

they might if the offset of the rim is wrong, do you know what the rims came off of? or even what the offset is?

It's comming off a 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse, they arent the stock rims and were balanced by Tire Kingdom.

then those won't fit at all, BMW uses a 5x120 bolt pattern, the Eclipse uses a 5x114, it's possible to get adapters or have the rims redrilled but you're much better off just finding the right rims
