If you really want them, you can get metric TRX tires
(tyres) for the original BMW TRX rims. But it is very
likely that if you can find a local, good source for
these tires that they will prove VERY expensive. TRX
tires work well in dry conditions and they're not a
bad performer in wet. In cold, they're awful; in cold
and wet, almost undriveable.
Many people discover they can get a superior quality
and better-performing tire for "standard" rims sizes.
Our cars can accept rims as small as 13", up to 17",
and maybe even larger. You'd likely be able to buy 15"
or 16" tires AND rims for less money than one set of
