    Hi,

    I am in the process of looking for new tyres for my Malaysian built 2011 528i (3.0lt). Currently the car has 245/45R18 run flats on all 4 wheels. Looking at some online forums and some posts on here it would suggest that some cars have 245/45R18 on the front and 275/40R18 on the rear. I tried to contact BMW for assistance but got nowhere. Anyone know what the original size tyres are for this car?

    Thanks in advance

    Have you checked the sticker on your driver side B-pillar? The tire sizes are normally there. Currently you have a square setup, where all tires are the same. Staggered setup is meant for a much stable handling. Which is ur current wheel style?

    Based on your picture, you have style 237 wheels. refer here http://www.bmwstylewheels.com/bmw/237. All rims having the same width (8").

    Means originally, it has a square setup for this rims. Original size is 245/45/18, as per the side sticker.

    hope that clarifies.
