225/35-265/30

Ok i checked with the tire size calculator but wanted to check with some of the guys on this forum.

I'm getting a set of 19' staggered rims with 225/35/19 front and 265/30/19 rear......would that cause any problems with the XI (2011 E90XI)

The calculator says no but a second opinion never hurts.

thanks

Justice

I would run a 235/35/19 with your 265/30/19 as they are much closer in overall diameter.

Back tire would be too tall and xi's don't like that.

I'd also recommend 235/35/19 in front and 265/30/19 in back. That's what I run in the summer and have had no issues so far

You use the section on the right put your tire sizes in and then hit the compute button and it will give you the rotation diff....the left side is only if you wanted to check wheel offset diff......

what i did was put the BMW recommended set up in and then put the set up i'm currently running and mine is as close to a square set up as you can get....

All of the following will work and be within the tolerances you need on an XI

225/35/19 front, 255/30/19 rear

225/35/19 front, 265/30/19 rear

235/35/19 front, 265/30/19 rear

235/35/19 front, 275/30/19 rear

The decision now becomes what will fit with YOUR setup. How much you are lowered, what wheel offsets you're running, etc., etc.

Look nice, those are the style wheels I'm looking at. Did you have to roll your fenders and/or flare them out?

Very well said. All will fit and I can assure anyone with a sedan xi that 235/35 and 265/30 on 19's with a V1 set up looks sweet and fits great.
