Notes:

  1. Diameter is approximate. It varies with tire manufacturer and model. It also decreases about 1.1 % from new tread (10/32 inch) to no tread (2/32 inch).
  2. Differential ratio is effectively reduced by this amount, e.g. with 195/65-14 tires the stock 3.64:1 ratio becomes 3.44:1. Speedometer reading is reduced by this amount, e.g. with 195/65-14 tires the speedo
    reads 61.5 at 65 MPH. Speedo reading increases as tires wear (1). Speedo reading varies with normal manufacturing tolerances, typically -2/+5 % IMO.
  3. Slight, occasional rubbing on front inner fender walls at full lock is common with these sizes.
  4. Slight, occasional rubbing on tie rod boots possible on tii.
  5. Slight, occasional rubbing on front fender lips is common.
  6. Slight, occasional rubbing on front apron is possible.
  7. Rolling, trimming, or stretching of fender lips is required for clearance.
  8. E30 ('84-'91 3-series) 14-inch alloy wheels fit '02s well and are a common upgrade. If tires are included, try for 195/60 rather than 195/65. Replace steel wheel nuts with alloy wheel nuts.
  9. E21 320i wheels fit '02s poorly because of their different offset.

Comments and corrections are encouraged.
