335i sport line , Wheels/Tires feet question , need your help

i noticed some 335i coming with 255 wide on the rear
i got 225/45/18 for all the 4 tires.

i'd like to install wider rear tires.



is it possible on my stock wheels?
or i must buy new wheels?

well... unless it's a xdrive... F30 are staggered.
it seems that you have 4 tires w/ 225/45, you definitely need 255 for the rear... but somebody has done a square set up on non-xdrive models... search it. hopefully help you a bit.

buying new shoes for f30 is always a nice thing to do.

Is there anyway that you can return 2 of your tires in exchange for the 255?

What you have is correct from factory as mine is the same way. Those wheels are a square set up 8.0 inch all around. 225 is the tire it comes with. I too like the staggered set up which is why I bought a set of 403M wheels from a member, should be here today. My car is a 335I RWD. I also have a set of brand new General GMax going on. 225 front, 255 rear. Unfortunately you can not mount a 255 tire on a 8.0 rim. Trying to go back to the dealer is a waste of time unless you are buying a complete new set of wheels as what is on your car is the proper set up for that BMW style wheel.

I think that staggered wheels, come only with M Sport package cars, but need confirmation!
I live in Europe, so I don't know if they are differences between Europe and USA...

No you can get staggered on sport line here in the USA as long as you spec the car that way.

Don't forget to add HRE to this list - forged, high quality and cost a fortune!

I think Morr and HRE are about the same price at ~$3800 a set (19") depending on finish options +/- $100. A bit cheaper than your $2k per tire fear but still not exactly cheap.

I know there are options that are about half that price with the loss of some quality, but I'm sure others can chime in. $2k for a decent set shouldn't be too hard to find if you look around. There are quite a few threads here that show what people are using/looking at that could probably give you a good idea.

I think any you listed in your post above would run you $4k or less for the set (that was my point). It's all about your personal taste more than anything. They all have their designs but most can be finished in a variety of ways and are light weight. Obviously your $1500 set won't be quite as 'high tech' as your $4k set but it's all about what you want.

Most people would tell you go with HRE or Morr if you want quality lightweight wheels (although the wait can be quite a while for either, especially Morr right now).

I've only really looked at HRE and Morr honestly and both have received great reviews as far as the wheels are concerned. I think Morr and their retailers need to work on customer service and do a better job at status updates to customers, but that's another story. Can't comment on HRE or others customer service though.

I'd say take a look at examples of what you like best from the list you posted (can't really go wrong with any of them) then ask opinions on a few specific sets. It's hard to say what you should get as it's so wide open and everyone has their opinion on what they like as far as looks.
