Recommended Posts

I have a 2018 G31 with 17 inch alloys, would i be able to fit genuine bmw 19inch alloys and if so how much would it effect the ride

Thanks

Should have no problem with any from 17” to 20” whether straight or staggered but yes, as @Johnyboysays 19” will feel noticeably harder. Better looks than 17” though which IMHO do look rather small on a 5.

Yeah I have the standard fit 17” wheels on my 5, and they do look like office chair castors haha. The ride is superb though - I don’t think putting 19’s on will actually make it a whole lot worse, it’s the run-flats BMW insist on fitting as standard equipment on anything 18” and above that do the most damage to the ride in my opinion.

I've got 19s on mine and the ride is fine B)

 

I do too, and RoFs, and whilst I wouldn’t call it harsh it’s certainly a very firm ride over Fife’s potholed and broken-up roads.

19's as well on my G31 with run flats and can't really fault the ride. I do have variable dampers and even in sport mode find the ride good.

 

Changing from 17's to 19's, I am sure you will notice some deterioration in the ride, but this is also influenced by the type of trye and also brand of tyre
