The car is a 2011 e92 328xi stock suspension.
Currently I am looking at 225/50/17. Any thoughts?
If going with a staggered set of wheels get 225/45/17 front and 255/40/17 in the rear and it will achieve what you want. Going to a plus sized tire will affect handling and possibly fitment. If you have runflats, simply going to standard tires makes a huge difference.
