Style 322 wheels 8" or 9" wide - which is right for me?

I have a 2013 X1 3.5i that came with 8" wide Style 322 Y-spoke wheels all around (BMW part #36116789145). I also see that there's a Style 322 Y-Spoke that is 9" wide (BMW #36116789146). So my question is: can I replace my 8" Style 322 wheels with the 9" version? I am guessing the 9" Style 322 will only fit in the rear and not in the front, so I can only replace the rear wheels. But maybe you guys know better and can let me know if all the wheels can be replaced with the 9" Style 322. Thanks.

Well, I guess I found my answer. According to this chart, only the 18x9 with +41 offset can be used in the rear:

So much for my dream of fitting 18x9 Style 322 all around...

Don't get too discouraged... there's a good chance you can still do it. Search around on what setups others are using

Are you considering Both Square and Staggered Set Ups?
A 9"on the front with a 235/245 Tire might be OK without rubbing. You will have to ask around for this at Tire Places as you have done here.
How much would 2x9" from BMW Cost? Could this price get you 4 Aftermarket Wheels of your choice? OR 4x9" from BMW get you Aftermarket Wheels AND Tires of your choice.

1) 8"F c/w A 225 or B 235.
9"R c/w A255 or B265.
2) AFTERMARKET= 8.5"F c/w A 235 or B 245.
9.5"R c/w A 265 or B 275.
Either A or B Combinations.
From what I have seen on Forums A Staggered Set Up. The Running Diameter needs to be less than 1% or the same for the F and R Tires, especially for Xdrives.

You will need all your Original Spec's to start with. You can then Mix/ Match at tirerack or willtheyfit to name a few.
Whelcome to the Wheel and Tire Minefield Good luck with your searches.

Hi palpullero,
Just an Addition to my Reply. Another BMW Site.

Look up XBimmers there BMW X1 Forum.
Go to General BMW X1 (E84) Forum.
Look up Title, 255/35R19 too wide for front. You will notice comments by Mr Jack. Great Set Up.
Perhaps some more Questions here might help you.
Good Luck

So sorry to reply so late; didn't get emails about the replies. I am considering keeping the original wheels and putting 235/45/R18 instead, although they will not be Run Flat but they will be Pirelli Cinturato P7. I hope I don't have an issue with them.
