2011 335xi coupe staggered setup

Hi guys

I need your help with tire size. I have 2011 335xi coupe. Car came with 225/45/r17 tire all around. I guess my rims are 17x8. So i dont want to spend money on new wheels, i want to use mu current wheels(style 340) i am going to get rid of f... Rft tire and get michelin as3. While i have a chance i am wondering if i can use any wider tire on these wheels SAFELY. I dont track the car btw. Can i use any of the setup below? By making sure no odometer chance!



1-) 235/45/r17 all around ?
2-) 225/45/r17 front. and 245/40/r17 rear(i guess 255 would be big
and not safe for this wheel)

Any comment? Thanks in advance.

although i'm not entirely certain I believe that is a little too big, 245's are generally put on a 9 inch wheel I feel like that would cause a lot of sidewall bulge if you were to do this however I am no expert, I would recommend you look into aftermarket wheels because you can go even wider than 245's

The "design" diameter for the tires you mention (European Tire standards manual) is as follows:

225/45R17 = 634mm
235/45R17 = 644mm (one cm diff.)
245/40R17 = 628mm

All of these sizes are "approved" for an 8" rim width.

Yes, of course there will be an odometer (and speedometer) "adjustment." Why do you feel the need for a "wider" tire?
