205Eagle LS2 on a 7.5wheel (207M)

Hey guys,
Picked up a set of 207Ms for the girlfriends e82. Just had new Eagle ls2 put on but they are only 205s. Will the 205 runflat be stretched to fit the 7.5 rear wheel?

We have the wheel and tire insurance so kinda need to keep the runflats, that and she drives from ny to md once a month.

Thanks for the help, I'm not in the stretch game so i don't know.

I think the OEM tire fitment is 225s on the back. So yeah they'll stretch a bit.

Usually a 7.5 will use a 215 so I guess they will be slightly smaller but can I runflat be slightly stretched?

You'll be fine

A 205 tire can go on any rim from 5 to 7; this is from the Pirelli Tire Guide. (BMWCCA 408014)

Sweet thanks man. I was just worried about the fact they were runflats. No issues there right?
