    tyre choice

    Hi all, I have a dilemma which tyres for my f30 320 m sport currently on
    255x35xR19Y rear and 225x40xR19Y front continental's RF.
    putting normal tyres on is this wise ? what size would I need ? I know there is pro's and con's but there's such a price difference, and is it possible to have all 4 tyres the same size ?

    Your tyre size options will be on the info plate located in the drivers door shut.

    Your existing wheels are staggered so the rear rims should be, from memory, 9inch wide whereas your fronts will be 8.5inch.

    If you definately do want to run the same size tyres on all 4 wheels you'll need another pair of front rims with the same width as your existing fronts.

    Alternatively you could buy another set of wheels that are already the same size, that way you could drop to 18"s as per listed on the info plate?
