'12 528i - new wheel 19" question

I'm new to this forum and could use your help. I have a 2012 528i and I'm looking to upgrade my wheels to 19" 531m. I'm looking at staggered vs traditional non staggered. Thoughts? Any concerns with installing staggered 19" wheels on my car?

351M I assume, will fit your car no problem.

If you have an X Drive be careful with tire size selection if staggering the sizes. if the profile heights arent close enough the rolloing distance will be different between the front and rear. the traction control may sence this and think its whell spin and apply brake upon acceleration. You ma feel a tugging sensation. it happened to me and the traction control light didnt come on. Put the stock wheels and tires back on and problem goes away. if i were to do it agian I would not stagger
