Default E61 fitment question

Hey guys just picked up a 535xiT. Have wanted one for years and finally pulled the trigger. I'm interested in a local set and wheels for sale. They are miro 111's 19x8.5+35 front and 19x9.5+22 rear. I'm going to run 245/35/19's all around. Will these fit ok?

Be careful with staggered setups on an AWD car. The combo of rim and tire have to have the same rolling circumference on all four drive wheels. A 3% deviation front-to-back is allowed.


The offsets on your car are in the ET 35 - 45 range. Although not quite as attractive as the Miro 111s, you could look at a Style 312 wheel as a substitute.

Thank you for your response. I'm going to run a square sized tire set up. The staggered width and offset difference will not affect overall circumference. The stock width and stock offsets are laughable at best. Terribly sized for this car. I do not want stock sized width or offset. I want wider and a bit more aggressive fitment.

I guess my question should be, will I have any rubbing issues either on the inside or outside fender lips with these sizes? I will be running a 245/35/19 all around.

I run 18x9 et 31 square with Conti DWS 255/40 with no issues. Front filled out nice and rears could come out anoth 10-12mm.

What suspension were you running? I want to run a 18x9.5 et 35 square set all around, but I'm worried about fitment in the front.

Thank you for this info! I'm looking at some style 327's for winters with stock suspension on my 2009 535xi wagon and was concerned about them having a 30 offset but if you're getting away with 31 offset and a wider tire I think I should be fine running the 225/55/17.
