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.

Hi,Tony diepiriye,No,But you can try 215/55/18
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.
Hello sir,thanks for your previous reply but,one of the BMW manufacturer,s specified tire size is 235 50 R18;secondly,I would prefer to hv slightly wider tires than 215 55 R18,therefore will there be drivability problems installing 225 55 R18 ?? since the difference between the 215 55 R18 and 225 55 R18 is just the witdth or Widnes...

HiyaI have an F25 - 2011 X3 with 17" wheels all round and 225/60/17 tyres.Can I fit a set of X3 E83 2006 type 192 (182?) staggered wheels with 235/50/18 tyres on the front and 255/45/18 tyres on the rear without running into any problems?
Hi, yes you can.
Is it possible to use wheels from a BMW X3 f25 to a X3 E83? Front wheels 8,5x19 ET 38, Rear wheels 9,5X19 ET 48.
I want to know if a 2006 X3 - Rim 8Jx17 ET46 - 5x120 - M14 x 1.5- 72.6mmFit a 2007 530xi - which has stock rims- 7.5Jx17 ET43 - 5x120 - M12 x 1.5 - 72.6mm?? The offsets are close, but I'm concerned the X3 rims will rub on the finder skirts of the 530xi. Will the M12x1.5 Lug on the 530xi fit to the lug opening on the X3 rim??
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. 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 245/55R17Or Front 245/50R17 Back 245/60R17Or Front 245/50R17 Back 245/55R17Not 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

Thank You for your help!
Hi,John,yes,you can use 18'' rims and for the tire size you can try 235/50R18

Would a BMW 2010 X3 17"rims fit a BMW 2013 X3? Using this for winter tires set.Thanks.
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.
Would a OEM 17" wheel from a BMW X3 2016 fit a-2013 BMW X3?
hi wondering if 17 inch wheels from bmwx3 f25 would fit on a bmw x3 e83 all seem to be same except the lug bolts both m14 but f25 is 1.25 and e83 is m14 x1.5
Hi,George,yes.they have different lugs size but you can fit it. when you use them, you'd better choose the right size lugs.
hi john thanks for the reply what size of lugs would i need , would the existing lug bolt be ok
hi john ment to say would the lug bolt from e83 be ok
Hi,George,You can use e83 lugs for f25 rims.After fited,Take a balance test.
I have recently bought a 2015 X3 35d MSport. It has 245/45/19 98Y tyres on the front and 275/40/19 101Y on the rear. Is this in spec - looks wrong to me? Thanks.
Hi,John,BMW have different wheel width for front wheels and back wheels.So the tire size is little different,Your car tires is compatible,Don't worry
Thanks - mind is at rest. However, I am on the verge of ordering a new set of 18inch alloys for winter tyres. Should I be ordering different wheel sizes for front and rear? hanks, John
hi john thank you very much put my mind at ease,hopefully get them fitted at the weekend cheers once again george
Hi,George,After fited,if you still have other questions,You can show it there.
Hi, I currently have the 19 inch wheels on my 2011 X3 f25 3.0 d which are 245/45/19 front and 275/40/19 rear, my question is this : I am looking at upgrading to the bmw style 128 rims which are 21 inch, after running this through an online calculator everything fits and will work fine except the front wheels will have a positive scrub radius of 10 mm, my question is will this negatively impact my car as far as steering and braking ?
Hi,Andrew,If the tires and rims is compatible,you don't worry abou it.For the front wheel positive scrub radius of 10mm,Bmw's front tires and wheel size is little different from rear.Don't worry
Hello John.. I have slightly the same inquiry, But I have a 245/50/18x8 ET43. Will modify to 275/40/19x9.5 ET24 square set... I used wheel-size.com calculator, everything looks fine but I am concerned about the 19mm positive scrub radius. How much of a clearance do I really have for the front wheel? How much will it rub when I turn?
Thank you in advance.
This is the link to visualize the modification.https://www.wheel-size.com/calc/?wheel1=245-50-18X8ET43&wheel2=275-40-19X9.5ET24&fcl=50mm&wcl=30mm&scl=50mm&sr=0mm

Hi,Joe R,the offset for X3 is 39-46mm,So if 331 mags have et33mm,it can fit for your car.May be need 2-3mm spacers i think.
Can you validate for sure if 2-3mm spacers are needed for style 331 mags going into a 2014 X3? These style 331 have an offset of et33mm. Thanks

Hi,Ray,No,x5 offset is 38mm,but x3 is 46mm for stock rims.
I have a 2013 X3 28i with stock 18's. Can you tell me if 17 inch rims off a 2007 will fit? Thanks
Hi,Mike,If both wheels are stock size,you can use it.
So I found out the rims are off a 2010 X3 17 inch and they do not fit. They hit the calipers. Can I use wheel spacers. I believe the 2010's have an offset of 46mm and the 2013 has 43mm. Am I correct. So a wheel spacer of say 10mm would probably be ok? Its so close to fitting.
My BMW is 2007 X3 3.0i n52 engine. now i'm use front 245 45 19, rear 275 40 19 tires on my X3is it possible that 255 40 19, 285 35 19 tires fit to my X3?without no spacer

Hi, wondering if I can install my old factory 2006 17” X3 rims on a 2010 X3? Can I also install them on a 2011 X3? Thanks!
Hi,Chad,yes,you can use 2006 rims on 2010 and 2011
Excellent! Thank you John!
Hi again John,
Wondering if those same 17” rims from a 2006 X3 would fit on a 2013 X1?
Hi,Chad,For 2006 x3,the 17'' rim offset is 46mm,but for 2013 x1,it is 34mm which is not compatible.
Hi I have 2015 X3 3.0d with front 245/40/R20 and back 275/35/R20 alloys/tyres. Can I replace these with alloys for 245/50/R18 tyres as I have a set of winter tyres this size from old 2011 F25 X3 3.5d?
Hi,JB,Yes,you can try it.
I have a 2007 BMW X3. It has 235/50ZR18 tires on it.
I'm looking at buying a set of X5 rims that are :
E 7 1/2 Jx17SEH2 IS 40Wheels part number 6 761 929
If I understood the calculator and the response to Christy above, these would fit, but I would need a 3mm spacer on each wheel. Is that correct ?
Hi,Bruce Cameron,What the x5 tire size?it's wheel offset is 40mm?I can help you confirm it.
The tire on the X5 rim is a 235 55 17Rim width 7.5inOffset 40 on X5 (compared to my X3 which has 46 offset). Thanks John, welcome your thoughts.
