Snows for 540i 6 speed (archive)

Here's a new question:

I have a set of 15" Vredestein snow tires for my current 98 528i. I am taking delivery of a 540i this fall. If I buy stock BMW 15 rims, can I put the snows on the 540i for this winter? Even if I'm going from 17" wheels to 15" rims? What will this do to my suspension, handling and tire clearance?

I hate to get rid of the snows, as they have at least two more winters of use available to them.

Any help here is appreciated.
