That's the perfect size for tires - that's the OEM size for staggared tires, for both RWD and xDrive. Not sure about the rims - might be a bit wider than stock but it's not going to matter.

What style are you considering?
I am lookin for new wheels but i was hoping to stay with oem wheels. I like the 59590 style and i use to see plenty of them on ebay but now i want to buy and cant find any.

I was also considering the Miro 111. I just dont know if they are decent quality. Anyone have an opinion on these?

I have a set of staggered 18" BMW Style 196 Rims that were a spare set from my 2007 335i. They have been professionally refurbished, are boxed and since being redone have never had tires mounted on them or been mounted on a car.

No reasonable offer will be refused.
Unreasonable offers will be seriously considered,
