Will 19" wheel+tires fit in trunk?

I'm picking up a X3 this weekend and then driving over to a buddy's place to pick up his 19" rims with tires. I'm curious if all 4 wheels that have tires on them will fit in the trunk without the need to fold down the rear seat?

No, you have to have the seats down to get all 4 in

Today I took my old 16" x 205's winter alloys/tyres to a courier depot to send away to the new owners and all 4 fitted into the boot no problem.
I then went to the local BMW dealer to pick up my new 18" x 245's winter alloys/tyres to take home, and they would NOT all fit into the boot.
I had to drop the wife and one of the kids off at the bus station, to take the bus home, then go back for them

4 x 18"'s went in fine with the rear seats down. 19's will fit easily.

The OP was asking "without the need to fold the rear seats". 4x19s will definitely not fit in the boot without folding down the seats. Mine are staggered so the rear two are wider but I didn't even attempt it with my square 18s either

I ditched the run flats and went with regular tires and I keep a spare in the trunk. It will not fit "stood up" with the tire inflated, so I have it layed down. You could easily stack 1, maybe 2, more on top. Most definitely all 4 won't fit without laying down the back seat.
