Anybody running the 513M wheels on their F31? I know with the staggered setup being intended for an F80 M3, it supposedly puts strain on the transfer case and causes premature wear unless you're running a square setup with all 'fronts'? Is this still the case if you have the staggered setup but are running square setup in terms of tires with 255's all around?

I have a squared 513M 18x9 set that I switch between my F31 and E90 but currently on the F31 I am running a staggered set of Apexs with 255/40/18 Michelins without any issues. As long as the tires are within 1% diameter of each other then you will be fine.

Nice. You bought Eric's wagon?

Yup. Powder coated black CH-R in square setup 20x9. Still need to clean up some details like get a black rebuild kit for the tpms so everything is blacked out. Still getting used to black wheels but I think I like it haha.

Yup - Eric does such a perfect job with his mods. Fell in love with this wagon on IG and jumped on it when it came available.

Staggered adds understeer, keep tire diameters the same and you won’t have worries about the tc, but you will find you need a bigger bar to make up for the wider rear tires.

Hello everyone, I'm a former E46 wagon owner. Took a short break from the Bavarian Motor Werks until I found a nicely dressed 2014 mineral grey F31 Touring I couldn't pass up last week.

M Sport brakes!

So this happened today.

Thanks Roadshow BMW for the great deal on the kit and quick shipping. Thanks Craig & team at World Motorsports as usual for the great install work!

Gracias homie! Going on two years of ownership and still loving it.

Lots of beautiful stock and modified wagons in this thread. Makes me yearn for a nice drop but the stock ride height is more practical as a family hauler you feel me?
