I've researched it exhaustively and IMO, it's not worth the possible trouble. It can be done, but I don't know how sensitive the BMW transfer cases are. All I do know is the fact that your rolling diameter has to be the same...no matter what. The wheel and tire width isn't as vital.

Another option could be (with a somewhat unlimited budget) to talk to DPE wheels and see if they can do custom offsets to achieve the "staggered" look without increasing wheel width...I don't know if it's possible but for around $4-5k you should have that option.

2002 Black 330xi here, loaded to the gills. Done lots of sound system upgrades, need to finish her off and a full detailing in the next couple weeks.

Planning on halos, clear lenses all around, blue lights, and whatever else I can try and sneak onto the car with my meager income.

Welcome to the Xi club! Yes, our cars are slower and a little harder to mod, but its a BMW nonetheless!!
