: The BMW recommendation for the 17" wheel is a 235/45-17. I run these on the front of my 540 with 8" wide wheels. I run 265/40-17's on the rear , but with 9" wide wheels. A 245-40 will fit fine with the 8" width and not rub on the wheelwells.
: I am interested in upgrading the stock wheels on my 1995 540ia to 17's.
: What tire size do you recommend? Any recommends for tires? I was leaning towards the Pirelli 7000 SS?
