Question Non-staggered 162s with 18's?

Ok I have an xi with 158's and 17" all-seasons all around.

What do you all think of the possibility of finding 4-162's and putting on all-season 18s all around instead of staggered? Is it feasible?

I didn't get the staggered 162s originally because I didn't want the preformance tires for our rainy season and I'm glad that I didn't with all the rain this past winter.

I guess if it's possible to find 4-162s and non-RFT 18's then I might do it. But then I need to get some kind of spare/jack system. I guess I'd be willing to get RFTs too.

Anyone have any recommendation? TIA

The 18" 162's sound good. You have to go same size though, staggard tires will not work properly on an all-wheel drive vehicle.

Actually it's possible to go staggard (off-set though). It's an additional option on the xi's with SP. You can get performance tires with the off-set. However, I don't care about the offset, just that I'd like to get all-season 18s on 162s.

Rubbish. Staggered 18" tires are a factory option.

The 162s with the stock tires are NOT a problem for rain. I don't understand your question. Are you asking to put 225s on all four wheels? A 225 on the 8.5" rear wheel would not be prudent. If you're taling about different offset, I don't understand that question either.

Actually you interpreted my question better than I asked it. I'm talking about putting on 18 all-seasons all around. I guess my question is if there is a difference between the front and back; so that, I have to have the offset. Is it possible to do it without an offset since I have 17" all around right now.

The offset of a wheel is the distance from its hub mounting surface to the centerline of the wheel. The offset on an e90 is the same front and back.

My suggestion is to get a brochure and/or an accessory catalog.

Sport package equipped E90s have 225s up front and 255s in the back. A truly aweome look.
