OEM Gunmetal 18s and Blizzaks?

I just purchased OEM Gunmetal rims and would like to have them as either track tires or winter tires. I also have the Tirerack winter wheel/tire setup that they sold last year. It is the Sport Edition A7 18s and the Blizzak tires. My question is: Would I be able to put those Blizzaks on the Gunmetal rims, or will they not fit?

Thanks!

Assuming you are talking about the Bridgstone Blizzak LM-25 winter tires...

Yes, that tire setup from your A7's will fit the OEM 18's just fine.

A7 front is 18x8 (OEM 18 is 18x8.5) Blizzak 235/40/18

A7 rear is 18x9 (OEM 18 is 18x9.5) Blizzak 255/40/18

BMW's recommended winter setup is 235/40/18 with 18x8 wheels on all four corners, but that setup would look weird on our cars due to the staggered factory wheel configuration. (tucked in way too much in the back)
