Breyton Magics

Good afternoon to all!

So i bought breyton magics last year and got the dunlop sport tires (285/30/22) and the rims are 22x10. I wanted to know if i could have different size tires on front and back even when the rims are the same sizes....

I have been going on tireracks website and they are no help at all even tho i got the wheels from them, but they have a chart showing the sized and diameters with different wheels and tire sizes....


Wanting to know if i can go with a 265/35/22 tire on the front wheels and something like 315/30/22 on the back....

So the reason i am doin this is because the 285/30 on the front is wide and my steering wheel is hard to turn, and also the ride is pretty stiff but still not bad, but i am thinking if i change the tire sizes i can get better handling with the 265 and better rear width with 315 for more aggresive look.

I have checked the charts and seems like the rim diameter with tire will be about the same overall diameter, maybe a small difference.........So will this work for my wheels or do i have to get new wheels for a staggered tire fitment.....???

close, but...

The tire sizes you selected are within a couple tenths of one another (overall diameter), so should be OK (not sure of the "official" BMW tolerance), but main concern is that the 315 needs at least a 10.5" wide wheel per the manufacturers. Wouldn't be the safest application.....

You didn't include the year and version of your X5, so I'm not sure if the 315 is OK or not (width wise).

got a 4.4

well i got a 4.4 and the rim size is 22x10, so if its not 10.5 for a 315 tire, it wont fit, how about a 305 tire....thanks

305/30R22 would need at least an 11" wide wheel. The widest tire we know to fit (both the truck and the wheel) is a 295/30R22.
