    Hi BMW Family,
    I have a pre-owned 2016 X3 (8.5k miles at purchase) on its original set of tires; I’m currently in the market to replace the original tires (after a total of 30k miles, a feat in itself on run flats LOL). Not sure why an SUV (or to be technical SAV) would come with low profile tires is beyond me. With that being said, my current setup is staggered 245/40/20 and 275/35/20, yup, you guessed it, a rough ride. I’m interested in going to either (a) 245/45/19 all around by changing to M622 rims or (b) 245/40/20 all around by swapping out the rear M310 rims. Unfortunately, the price will be roughly the same for either setup. Please feel free to provide any pros/cons to removing the staggered setup based on the two options.
    Thank you in advance!
