Style 351 widest possible?

Hi guys,

Wondering what are the widest size Michelin PS4S I'll be able to run on the stock style 351. I believe they're 8.5 and 9.5 inches wide. Currently running the OEM 245/40 square run flats.

Is a 285 possible in the rear? If so, what would be the appropriate front size?

It's a 550xi M sport

Thank you

Was the car delivered from factory with square 245/40-19 tires?

If so, I'm sure the wheels are square 8.5x19" ET33.

The staggered style 351 wheels and tires are:
F: 8.5x19" ET33, 245/40-19
R: 9x19" ET44, 275/35-19

On square 8.5x19" wheels 255/40-19 tires would fit fine!

I am currently running the square setup from the factory but i am looking for a more aggressive staggered fitment.

Yes.

But if your 351 wheels are square 8.5x19" then you can't fit anything wider than 255/40-19 front or rear.

Did your car come with a square or staggered setup from the factory?

In the US, X-Drive models come with square setup, rear wheel drive models come staggered
