    BMW X3 the same size for rear and front

    I have a bmw x3 e83 20 diesel with staggered wheels front 235 50 18 and rear 255 45 18. Can I change the rear rims and both tires and make them as the front ones ??? so all tires will be 235 50 18?? Will I have any issues with the car drive train? Thanks

      Hi,Andrew.I does not suggest that you change the rear rims and tires as the same as the front one,Because according to the OEM specs,The width of rear wheels have 0.5'' wieder than front.

                  Thanks for your timely reply but,one of the recommend size is 235 50 R18;Therefore,I would prefer a slightly wider tire than 215 55 R18; hence,I would like to know if 225 55 R18 will be fine.

                    Hi,Ryan Canty,19*8.5/ 19*9.5 and offset,bolt pattern is OK.but I suggest that you pay attention to the cb data.72.56 is small i think.I suggest that you can put 72.6 and above.

                          Hi, Devin,If you place it directly,it can't fit for.You need to buy some spacers(size like 8mm) for the wheels.

                                  Hi,D Heath,The offset is not a problem,You can try it.And for the lug size.I think it should be M14*1.5,But you'd better confirm again with wheel dealers.

                                                Hello :-) I have a 2005 BMW X3 3.0l. ...

                                                Hello :-) I have a 2005 BMW X3 3.0l. Car came with 235/55R17, the same size front and back, pressure in front at 32, in back at 38. I would like to change it to a staggered configuration and was thinking of the following:
                                                Front 235/55R17 Back 245/55R17
                                                Or Front 245/50R17 Back 245/60R17
                                                Or Front 245/50R17 Back 245/55R17
                                                Not looking to change wheels, just tires. Which would be the best combination? What tire pressure would be best for the above combinations, front and back respectively?
                                                Thank you so much, would truly appreciate some input.

                                                  Hi,Gwyneth,The first one is the best.For the tire pressure,You can use the same.It does not matter.

                                                    Thank you so much John! Done, got tires in that format. For right now used tires that I found in awesome condition to try out if I like how the car drives with that format before I buy new ones. 235/55R17 Continental Conticontactpro E All Season 99H for 30 bucks a piece. 245/55R17 102H Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Run Flat for 50 bucks a piece. Are those good tires when they are new? Trying to find great tires that are not noisy and makes the carride as soft and smooth as possible but still be very safe, responsive and gripping the road very well come rain or shine. Is that possible? I live in Phoenix, AZ, roads here are horrible when it rains because constructed for only no rain. Thank you again John, I so appreciate all the help I can get with this.

                                                      Hi,Gwyneth,First question reply:Yes,your choice is ok.And after fited,you can ask the dealer to test the balance.Second question reply:It depend many things,Not just the tires.But for tires,it must be comaptible.

                                                  Hello! I have a 2007 x3 3.0si M

                                                  It has 19" rims with different size tires front and rear. I have an extra set of 18" x5 rims i would like to use for winter tires. What size tires do you recommend I put on the 18" rims and is it even possible?

                                                  Thank You for your help!

                                                      Thank you for the speedy response! I do not have to do the different size front and rear like the below states? I can do the same size al the way around?

                                                      235/50R18

                                                      No, they will not fit. I have tried. The brake calipers on the newer 2011-2016 X3 are too large for the OEM 17" wheels from the earlier 2003-2010 X3.
