View Full Version : Winter Tire Options for 2011 535XI M Sports Package

I just leased my first BMW and couldn't be happier. However living in Ohio, I will need winter tires and decided to look into this issue early enough.

What are my run flat winter rim + tire options for the 2011 BMW 535Xi with M Sports package? The original tires are run flat 275/35R19 front and 245/40R19 rear on 19" alloy rims. Do I have to stick to 19" rims or can I buy 18"? Are there any winter run flat tires? If I stay with 19", do I have to buy staggered sized tires again (275 front 245 rear)?

Thanks for your help

You can go down to 18' provided the wheel clears the brakes. You can run square or staggered setup. Check your manual for recommendations.
