Phillip, I agree with your opinion on the benefits of a staggered setup for a xi, but I didn't by a 335xi to be conservative.
I like the CSL style rims and would use my current stock wheels for winter. Are the 8.5” the widest you can put on the front? And 9.5 on the rear with the correct tire size and not modifying the car? If 8.5 are the largest I can realistically put on the front, having 9.5 on the back will still provide a little more traction; not so much on a straight line, but more in the corners. My old school mentality is more rubber is always better.
