Wider Wheels on F10

I have a F10 535i (Sport Pkg, Prm Pkg 1+2, Convenience, BMW Apps etc.)

I was wondering if it were possible to have wider tires than the standard sport tires? I like how wider tires look (however I don't want something that sticks out from the side when you look at the car from the back). Can anyone make any suggestions if this is possible and if so what they would recommend?

You can put 255's in front and 275's on the rear no problem

Also depends on your wheels spec, and tyre profiles, besides on width

Are think about wider tire on the OEM wheels or wider tire and wheels?

I'd recommend wider wheels if you want wider tires.

Yes, and 295 fits on the non M5 too, put you need wider aftermarket wheels.

We could always build you a custom set which won't stick out of the fenders AND have wider rubber on there! They could even have a custom finish combination you come up with! PM me if you would like more info and feel free to browse through our site!
