Mein Auto: 2011 550ix Mpkge,etc; RRv

I'm going to get the 312 20" wheels (w/Michelin SS when they come off backorder). I'm pretty sure they don't come in 19", because that would be TOO easy, right? What I'm wondering is whether staggered wheels will be at ALL advantageous on my x-drive car? I'm thinking no, plus I like the idea of having 4 interchangeable wheels/tires all the same size (8.5" rims).

However, since I'm not exactly sure how the x-drive is implemented from a standing start, I'm not sure whether I'd be giving up any performance or not by just using 245x35x20's on 8.5" 312s all around. I could see where I would be on a rear-wheel drive car, but not sure on this x-drive.

I could use some experienced advice here - please chime in if you have some....Thanks
