Mein Auto: 2011 535ix
Style 613M wheels and tires on a 535x

Getting ready to pull ahead my lease, want to get 2014 M sport 535x, BUT hate the 19inch Ls2 tires. Had to replace 9 tires already.

Anyone know if it is possible to add the 18 inch wheels that come on the 528 M sport, Stlye 613M , to the 535x build?

It can probably be done thru a special order but I think you have better options than going with 528 wheels. Why would you want to make your car look like a 528?

Have you looked at M5 wheels?? Those seem to be a popular choice...

It's not that I want to look like a 528. Just want to drive a car that I don't have to worry so much about tires. The 18inch M sport rims/wheels look about the same as 19 inch.

So the M5 wheels go in the wrong direction, seem more fragile than the Ls2 in 19inch.

What are these other options you mention. BTW switching tires for winter and summer is not an option for me, nor is gong with non run flats, becasue there is no spear.

Trying to figure out if the tires on 535s ,despite the line you choose, are the same Ls2 in 19inch.

The normal 18" wheel for non sport 535 is Type 365. I happen to like it. I also agree with you re 18 vs. 19 or 20 inch. Here in the Northeast, I would not even consider 20's.

You could lookup the option code for the 528 wheels and might be able to special order. If they turn you down on that:
-do you like the base 535 18" wheels?

If so, you could try special ordering a no line car with the bits from the msport that you care about. Might even be cheaper than the full msport line. Here are my guesses:
-led fog lights: 200
-msport wheel: 400
-shadowline trim: 500 (I remember in the past this option being ridiculously expensive)
-mbody kit: 1200
-nappa leather: 1k
-black headliner (another potentially overpriced option): 500
-alum hex trim or anthracite wood: they might not charge you but if they did I'm guessing 3-500

So if you want all those things then it's probably better to buy the msport line, and then buy a used set of 528 wheels (or base 535 wheels if u like them)

So, found out that you relly cant do what I want to. So going to bite the bullet and get another Msport 535x. Pull ahead and residual too good to pass. Of course, being in Boston MA, I will get the tire insurance. And plan for a trip to the dealer every three months for a new tire.

You can go aftermarket for about what you are spending on insurance.

Good luck with the new ride. That's too bad that people have to go the route of buying other tires or have to buy insurance off the bat to offset BMW's design decision.
