Staggard wheels on e60 535xi?

Hello All,

Can you run staggard wheels on an x-drive car?

Also, can anyone recommend a setup with 19" wheels they use that has a nice flush fit?

I'm thinking about the MORR wheels or GTS-AV .... Not too sure what really looks good on the e60

Any recommendations without breaking the bank?

Yes, you can run a staggered set up on a 535xi. It's available as an option from BMW. Just need to be sure the wheel diameter is equal (or close to) front to back.

The factory offset is +47, but you can get down to the low 30's depending on wheel width for a more flush fit. The consensus 19 inch set up is 8.5 front (245/35/19) and 9.5 rear (275/30/19). Anyway, check on 5series.net and run a search. There is TONS of information on different set-ups, vendors, pics, etc. Good Luck.

OEM sport xi wheel size is:

18x8 +43 245/40/18
18x9 +54 275/35/18

VMR has 19x8.5 +35, 19x9.5 +45. That works for XIs
