I have an 07 X3 sport package with the staggered 19" wheels. I have been wanting to go with an all season tire. Those that are knowledgeable on the subject probably already know I have been running into trouble.

My question is can I just go with a 235/45R19 all the way around and be fine? right now I have 235/45R19 in the front and 255/40R19 in the back. What is the point of the staggered set up anyway? Doesn't really seem necessary to me on an AWD vehicle.

Thanks in advance.

I have no idea what the point of a staggered setup on a AWD vehicle is either to be honest ... probably just aggressive looks. :dunno

Anyway, the back wheels are wider (to accommodate the wider tires). You will be perfectly fine running same size tires all around: just keep in mind that the back tire will be stretched more ... perfectly fine if you don't mind it like that.

I run 235/40 all around (7.5 inch wide rim in the front and 8.5 in the back):


edit: notice the difference: sidewall sits flush in the front and has stretch in the back
