Staggered Wheels?

I went to my local wheel shop, and I was talking to the guy cause I really want staggered wheels. I have an '08 335xi and he told me it cannot be done because of the awd. He said eventually things would get screwed up.. is this true? anyone running staggered wheels without problems?

Well, this is an M3 forum, so most all of us have them. Relative to an AWD 3-Series, I have these comments:

1) Running staggered wheels with AWD makes no technical sense, because there is not rear traction issue like with 2WD.
2) There is no technical reason why it would not work, AFAIK, as long as careful attention is paid to keeping the ODs close by using the proper width and aspect ratio tires.
