omg why would you even consider such a thing? please tell me you're not really considering doing that to your F10! here we have everyone trying to upsize from the factory 18" and you are trying to go down? i dont see the logic

The answer is no. They will not clear the brake calipers.

Brochure photo suggests that maybe it can be done.

Hi, appreciate that you live in a part of the world where practicality overrides cosmetics. In answer to the question you asked... can it be done? Take a look at page 5 of this BMW Accessories brochure and caption 10 for snow chains. That tyre / wheel combo suggests that it can be done. Why don't you take that pdf to you dealer and ask them? Hope this helps.

(Sorry, could not attach the pfd as the file size is over 4MB, but there is the link)
