Q: What is a staggered fitment?
A: A staggered fitment is also referred to as a staggered application. Basically it means that you are running different sized wheels on the back of your BMW than from the front. Usually a staggered BMW wheel fitment refers to wider wheels on the rear of the vehicle, for example 19x8.5 on the front and 19x9.5 on the rear. Running wider BMW wheels on the drive wheels means more grip on acceleration and from an aesthetic perspective, it means larger lips.
Q: How do larger wheels affect the handling and performance of my BMW?
A: You can improve the handling of your vehicle by running larger BMW wheels. Larger BMW wheels mean you will run a low profile tire and usually a wider tire. The low profile tire often performs better when cornering and braking, because tire roll is greatly reduced. The low profile tire will result in a stiffer ride.
Q: What is a load rating?
A: A load rating refers to a maximum allowable weight that a given BMW wheel has been tested and rated at. All BMW wheels can be rated differently, for instance a passenger car wheel will require a smaller load rating than a heavier SUV. A vehicle manufacturer will give a standard GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) to each of its vehicles. This rating is the maximum allowable weight for a fully loaded vehicle including passengers and extra equipment. At that point each BMW wheel is then tested and rated according to the GVWR of all the vehicles they were meant to be mounted on.
Q: Can I use the original BMW wheel center cap?
A: Yes. The Beyern wheels for BMW will accept the factory cap. However you must keep in mind that BMW has built several styles of center caps.
Q: Will Beyern wheels fit all BMW’s?
A: Beyern wheels were designed to fit the 3 series, 5 series, 6 series, 7 series, Z3, Z4, X3 or X5 BMW. Of course we always recommend test fitting for proper fitment prior to mounting of tires, especially on heavily modified vehicles.
