Will these taller tires fit on my e90?!!

Front tire size are 225/40/19 on the 19x8 wheels and 255/35/19 on 19x9.5 rear wheels.


Are these tires too tall for my lowered e90, lower than sport suspension??!!!

Any help will be happily appreciated.

Correct sizes would be 225/35R19 or 235/35R19 up front and 255/30R19 or 265/30R19 rear.

Definitely too tall. Step the sidewalls down to a 35 profile front and 30 profile rear.

I was willing to take the risk of buying the wheels and tires, but the owner didn't want to go down another $50... sucks for him. I would've had a nice headache by now and he could've had cash in his pocket!

Thanks for chiming in guys!

Not really way too tall. I've seen 225/45/18 fitted on e92 and also 265/35/18 on e90 so I guess it's works.
But I wonldn't do it myself.
