I know very about tire sizing, add the fact that I drive an xi and I now know virtually nothing. I'm considering a set of Style 220 19x8.5 but I'm unsure of whether they'll fit and what size tires would be best. Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: Should've searched a little harder...my bad. Seems like many people run 235x35x19 on 19x8.5 setups. Still not sure of the offset issue with xi's if someone could assist.

235 40 18 is a good tires size for 8.5 wheels on an e46XI

I agree...I have Hartge 18 x 8.5 w/40 offset wheels and Nitto Neo Gen 235 40 18 tires. I think it's a perfect match, just need the coilover's to get rid of the fender gap and all will be good !

2001 BMW 330xi tire fitment

Hey I need help please. Iím looking into buying 18Ē Genuine BMW Style 135 rims for my 2001 BMW 330xi. I just need help choosing the right tire fitment for a summer tire fitment. I also have a stock suspension and Iím definitely not rolling a fender. I donít know if it matters but my winter setup is 225/45R17.

Can someone please help me.
Thank you.
