I really wanted these wheels but they came from my friends 550i. Anyone have experience with this fitment? I have a LCI 335 xdrive on stock suspension and not planning to lower

Front 245/40/19 ET 33 and rear 275/35/19 ET 44 ? Any help or confirmation is appreciated !

^yup, it's about 5%taller, if I don't mind that my speedo is off, and given that it doesn't rub, would I be able to use the tires? Ill effect to the drivetrain?

I would go with recommended sizes of 235/35/19 and 265/30/19. All-wheel drive system is kinda picky about what tires will work and not work. If it doesn't work, car will go into 'limp' mode.

I'm currently running w/ these specs on my stock suspension. My wheels are 1 finger away from touching the springs. I'm not sure about the fitment on an Xdrive.

19X8.5 +35 offset tires 245/35/19
19X9.5 +40 offset tires 275/30/19

Hi, i also own a pre-Lci 335xi and what the delearship told me is that the all wheel drive system has to have the same height of tires. The height is determined by a percentage of the the width and the two sizes that work are F-235/35/19 R-275/30/19 and also the stock combonation F-225/40/19 R-255/35/19. These should both work since there heights are very similar. Hope this helps good luck
