m359 staggered

Im about to put theses on my 328 xi and wanted to know that theses were the correct tire size

19" 8.5 ET 35 front and 19" 9.5 ET 35 rears with 235/35/19 front rubber and 265/30/19 rear?

Or should I go non staggered..If i go non staggered with wider tires and spacers with that put the same wear on the crank case?

I saw someone had trouble with hearing a clunking sound...

Ya go square or keep the oem 19" sizes. 225/255. Research the offsets.
Rolling diameter is good with those sizes.

Thank god my tires are finishes (same as u wanted). Got sick of that clunk....

You heard the clunk sound with this set up 19" 8.5 ET 35 front and 19" 9.5 ET 35 rears with 235/35/19 front rubber and 265/30/19 rear. I heard that was the recommended staggered size.

I don't know what you mean keep the oem 19s .

I have the sport 335 sport rims on now which are staggered , and have not had any issues.

OEM 19's from dealer are 225/35/19 & 255/30/19

Plug in that on tire section calculator and u will see that rolling diameter difference is way below your 235/265 setup. Therefore it's good for your xi

So either go with oem size or square

Don't listen to noobs. Our cars come optioned from the factory with staggered wheels, so this will not adversary affect your car if you keep the same rolling diameter.

Go staggered. I have this set up with M359 and Conti Extreme Conti. 19x9.5 35ET, 19x10 38ET, 235/35/19 front and 265/30/19. If you are not that lowered, like mine (I have KW V1s) because of snow, I would use 275 instead of 265. It looks like I could use a 15mm spacer on the rear.

Are you sure? I have KW V1's too and my rear is lower. (Perhaps it's the angle of the photo.)

Yep! It took me a long time to make a decision, but I ended up with the V1's and love them. They aren't harsh by any means and the car feels so much more planted. Best mod I've done to my car.
