I have stock 17 inch rims was wondering if buying from tire rack is a good choice. I would like 19s or even 20s. But not sure if non oem wheels would be problematic. Also I have these clunky runflats that are horrible. I'm in Florida so pretty much year round summer. Also headlights are currently halogen. Any recommendations for led ?

Welcome to Bimmerfest!

I moved your thread to the F25 forum (X3, 2011-2017) so you can get model-specific advice.

You can get 19s or 20s and dump the runflats. For tires, check out Firehawk Indy 500. I run Conti DWS06.

You can use any brand run/tire you want. If you are going to a staggered setup, you will need to stay within a certain % diameter of the front:rear tire ratio so you donít destroy Xdrive.

You can add LEDs to replace halogen but you will need to do coding to remove the warnings in your dash with either a laptop and Esys or the Bimmercode App for IOS/Android.
