162 wheels on a 325XI

Does anyone know if you can put staggered wheels (ie 162's) on an XI? I've read you can't put a staggered setup on an X-drive equipped e90 without damaging the drive train. Just want to confirm this before I start looking for 162's. BTW the dealer wasn't much help on answering this...Thanks!

I think you can because when you order a 330 xi with sports package you get the 162's. However, you do not get the sports suspension.

Actually the 330XI sport package comes with the 158s and A/S tires. The 162s with performance tires are an add-on after that.

Cool... so it should'nt be an issue to have staggered wheels on the XI. I found some 162's for a very decent price, actually the tires look like they will be the more expensive part of the upgrade. Thanks for the replies!
