Rims didn't come with center caps so I thought I'd see how much difference in size between the stock rims center cap hole and the Prime'*. The stock center cap fits AWESOME!!!!! Less hassle than Jim had and they look absolutely schaweet with those caps. Damn, now I hope the tire part doesn't bite me (heads off to watch the BMW forum for tires).

Yup, the 245/45/18'* are what the tire calculator said to put on for the same diameter for the 225/60/16'*. And yes the 245'* will go on the 7.5" easily. The tire shop I talked to said 255 is as large as I'd want to put on the 7.5" so the 245'* will be fine.
