Will 245/45/19 fit my 5er without rubbing?

Hey guys quick question.
Will a 245/45/19 set fit my 535i base sedan without rubbing or interference?
I currently have a 245/40/19 which is fine but need to confirm about a 245/45/19 setup.
Thanks!

Your speedo will be off by a 4%.

Overall diameter is also off by 4%. That's 1 inch too big on the proposed setup.

Not recommended.

Garage List
it's not rubbing you should be worried about. You changed the rolling diameter of the car over 3.5%. Speedo errors,worse gas mileage, car may pull, alignment issues. Not worth it. Go 255/40R19.

Would 245/40/19 all around be better or would I definitely need to do a staggered setup?

I have 245/45/19 Dunlop tires on my 5 series. no problems what so ever in ride, I know that my speedo is a litle bit off but I dont care. the wheel arch looks much better filled up now than with low profile 245/45 in my oppinion.

NO Problem with 245/45r19

I agree with WR11, the 245 45 19 works great and fits the wheel well better.
The overall diameter is 27.7 and is the same diameter as the 245 40 r 20/ 275 35 20 which I will be running on my 550 xdrive. BTW one can run staggered wheels on the xdrive. Just make sure all your tires have the same diameter.

My last 3 BMWs speedmeter read 2-3mph slow....tested by radar and GPS and the inch taller tire actually corrects the true speed. I've talked to several Dealer Service Depts about this and they say that the factory is within the margin or error 3-5%.

I Have a 535i M Sport pack. I have the staggered rims. I just purchased 245/45/49 Goodyear LS2's that came off a 7 series. All four tires are the same size. They Fit perfectly, even on the back rims that are wider. It looks so much better, It fills the wheel well up perfectly. The ride is much smoother, I go over potholes with ease! I dont understand why BMW doesnt approve this, They want you to keep cracking rims and buying new tires.

I highly recommend doing it!

I am thinking of get 245/45R19 Dunlop run flat winter tires for my 2011 535i xDrive because there is simply not enough options in the 245/40R19 size. It's good reading about your experience. Hope I don't run into any issues, otherwise this could be an expensive experiment.
