Nope. The sport package is staggered, though.

I just sent an e-mail to the lady who sold me the car and I am awaiting for her feedback.

I just checked specs on http://www.thecarconnection.com/spec...formance-specs and it indeed says that all the tires are the same size in front and rear.

They look awfully strange though..

Your car is correct. BMW NA also confirms the tire/rim size. If you don't like the look of it, you should have gotten the sport package

I don't have the sports package, but I am looking for rear tires that are larger in the back. What would you recommend? I want it to look more even..

Also, I forgot to mention that I will be considering to change to 18 inch tires and rims later on. Any recommendations?

OEM 264 or 313 style rims. You can get 264s super cheap on this very forum, I even have a spare set for sale haha.

Tires would be 215f/245r or you can do 225f/255r.

I don't know what you're smoking, but the 328 base model also has a square setup in both coupe and sedan. It is the sport package that introduces staggered rims/tires.

Thanks buddy. Any recommended brands for tires? I'm looking to spend under $2,000 for a nice tire/wheel package. 18 inches.

I own a 135i but I believe:

128i without sport package comes with 205 all around on 17" rims

With sport package or m-sport you get 205 in the front and 225 in the rear, still 17"

Cool.

Yeah a 225 / 40 / ZR / 18 for example is:

225mm width
40% of that width is the sidewall height
ZR is the speed rating (one of many, Z was once the highest but other letters are higher now)
18 is the rim diameter in inches

A total height (in theory, as there are always small variables creeping in) is:

40% of 225mm for the sidewall at the top
+ 18" of rim
+ another 40% of 225mm for the sidewall at the bottom
________________
= the entire diameter of the wheel and tire

Have to do some unit conversion (ie 1" = 2.54cm) of course. But you can use this to compare OE to something aftermarket - such as if you wanted to go to a 19" wheel, and you had a 225mm tire, you can backtrack the #'s to see if you wanted a 30, 35, 40 series or whatever to keep the same diameter as stock (and thus the speedo reading right, less likelihood of hitting the suspension, etc.).
