  2. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    When I purchased my 320d (many years ago) it had 225/50 R16 tyres all round, fitted to style 136 alloy wheels. Whenever tyres have required replacement I've asked for 225/50 R16 to be fitted, on the assumption any other size will not fit. I recently found tyre specs on Realoem and it appears...
