What tyres to get and where?

Hey guys, after failing to sell my m3 rims i've decided to paint them matt black and put them on my car. But after many contradictory comments about the fitment, i just want to know. Will they fit? Scrub or no scrub?

The rim sizes are;
Front: 19X8.5 + 29
Rear: 19x9.5 + 23

Keep in mind that my car is at stock height and i have no plans on lowering.

2nd question is, what tyres? And any recommended places in sydney?
I m tempted to get PSS but i thnk they might be abit out of my budget..

Also try Supreme Power, they seemed cheaper than Tire rack when I last checked.

Check the figment from what I have been told you will need to roll the fenders and trim the liners to fit them or run 245 on the rear. Better off selling them !!

Hey I cant help but give my 2 cents - You should consider gloss black - they look way better than matt black imo. Just look look at all the performance models that are in the market now, most are going to gloss black
