162s and OEM RFTs on a 328xi

Hey everyone,

I'd like to upgrade the stock wheels on my car (09 328xi w/o ZSP) to 18" OEM 162s. Will this cause any issues with the DSC/xDrive or speedometer accuracy?

OEM runflats would go on the 162s (it's my daily driver). I believe they're 225/40R18 (front) and 255/35R18 (rear)? The tires currently on the car are not staggered, so this has me concerned.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts - just want to be sure everything will work correct before I make the purchase.

no worries....been using that setup in the summer for almost 4 years

I do prefer the PS2 runflats over the bridgestones...much more comfortable and smooth

Not a problem at all. The stagger is not an issue, only the rolling diameter which is nearly identical on those tires.

I run that exact setup on my 08 328xi w/o sport package in the summer.
