The modern day BMW 3 Series range is linked with a series of different original equipment tyre sizes. Depending on the particular model this can vary.

Due to the diferent size, the actual tyres that come fitted to the vehcile as OE can tend to vary as well.

One of the best ways to check the size of your car’s tyres is to check the tyres currently fitted to your car. You will find the size on the sidewall of the tyre, as a mixture of numbers and letters.
