: The 16" premium and sport wheels are the same size. If your car has already been built, it's up to your dealer to allow the trade or not.
: BTW, I agree with Dave S, the sport wheels grow on you, look much better in person.
: : Hi, I blindly ordered the sports package in the 323 without looking at the wheels. I am having regrets. I personally prefer the looks of the premium package.
: : Do you guys think that the tires for the 323sports package will fit the 323 premium package wheels? And whether BMW will allow such a change?
: : Otherwise, I guess I can purchase the MAS 16 inch wheels. Would those fit the sports package tires?
: : Thanks

The *tires* on the sport are different size (different width) than the premium, but the *rims* are the same size according to the BMW literature I've seen. Therefore, you should be abot to fit 225/50-R16's on the premium rims.
But if I'm totally wrong about this, please let me know. :)
