I need your help on wheels!!!!!!!!!

I'm looking to buy staggered wheels for my E92 328XI, but I heard that I can mess up my drive shaft if I but staggered wheels, because they require different size tires in the front and rear. Is this true? Or will I be fine putting staggered wheels on a XI?

it will be fine, but ou need to get wheels with the same diameter.....

so 225/40-18 front and 255/35-18 rear

or

235/35-19 front and 275/30-19

or

245/30-20 front and 295/25-20


those are ideal setups for XI staggered

It doesn't mess up your drive shaft. There is an option from BMW to get the 18" Style 189. That is also staggered. Same wheels as sports package 335i.

Also to use: 225/35-19 and 265/30-19. The choice is yours.

You're fine running staggered setup on your XI. Plenty of others have done it, and its also factory option. BMW wouldn't make it an option if it didn't work.
