Staggered Setup for XDrive?

Hey guys,

So the next thing I want to get is rims for my car. I really want to get rid of that wheel gap. My question is that can I run a staggered setup with Xdrive?

Also, any recommendations on rims for my car?

Thank you!

No issues with staggered setups on xDrive cars, just need to match front and rear tire diameters. Two possible tires setups, either 245/285 or 255/295.

Exampel of staggered wheel and tire combos for F10 xDrive:
F: 8.5x20" ET25, 245/35-20
R: 10x20" ET40, 285/30-20

F: 9x20" ET30, 255/35-20
R: 10.5x20" ET45, 295/30-20

The wheel offsets can vary a few mm without issues. Wheel diameters can be 19, 20 or 21", but the tire profile needs to be matched for chosen wheel size.

Lower the car to get rid of the wheel gap.

Just wanted to add, if you go bigger wheel while maintaining the proper wheel/tire specs, going up a wheel size will actually appear to increase the wheel gap. It's like an optical mind fu#&.

The only way to get rid of wheel gap is to lower your car lol.

Sorry to hijack but this might be useful to op.
Do any of you with staggered xi have weird noises on your drivetrain? Like when you very lightly step on the gas during cruising?
