How can you possibly have rubbing on the inside with these wheels.

I had 19 x 9.5 with ET39 offset on my 335i sedan and the same 265 series rubber, and never had rubbing issues.

With ET30 your wheels stick further out by 9 mm (about 1/3 inch).
Have you checked to make sure you aren't hearing something else.
Unless you ride with a coupe fat people in the back seats, I can't imagine the tires rubbing on the inside with that offset.

BTW, wheels look great on your car. Nice choice.

They are rubbing. I dont know what to tell you. I know what I am hearing. It's not that bad, only the 'gravity cavity' style bumps, but it's happening. And its somewhere on the inside. I haven't pulled the wheels to find out where yet. And I only transport thin females in the back seat

Thanks for the props. I got a lot of finger pointing in Vegas and on the road this week. I think the wheels look 'hollow' at speed, showing the calipers and disks. I bet a set of big brakes would really make it a looker while rolling.
