What would be the best wheel size for a 325ci(E46)?
The standard size is 205/55/16 but one of the options
is 225/45/17. Is there any great difference to be
expected in the handling or in the comfort?
I recently test drove a 320ci with sport-suspension
and 225/45/17 front 245/40/17 back. This combination
was much too hard for long distance driving although
it went well round corners.

In addition to wheel size, tire type is an important consideration. The
"all seasons" which probably came standard in the 205/55/16 size will give a
softer ride then the performance (V or higher rated) rubber included with
the sport package. Naturally, the softer the ride, the poorer the
handling - so you'll have to decide on the tradeoff.
