+1 Question


I have a 2011 BMW 550i with M-Sport. Right now i have the Style 351M Setup

245/40/19 Front
275/35/19 Rear

I just purchased 20" BMW Style 356. My question is: Can I put 275/35/20 in the front and 295/30/20 in the back?

Thanks in advance.

I'll take a stab at this one. You should not have a problem going with the following:

245/35/20 Front
275/30/20 Rear

The slight difference in the sidewall size will compensate for the 20" as opposed to your stock 19". However, going with 275 and 295 front/back, you may have offset issues. Also, with the wider tires your tire/wheel will be quite large and may look weird in relation to the car's wheel wheel even if you get past the fitment issues. You may want to consult with your local tire shop to confirm. You can try tirerack.com as their website is very informative.
