Will 9.5J ET30 fit pre-LCI E90 front?

Hi,
As title suggests, Will 9.5J ET30 fit on pre-LCI front?

I already have rubber in 235/35/19.

Can somebody kindly confirm if these alloys can go on pre-LCI front?

Thanks.

Thanks.

Should I go 9.5 all round or 9.5 front and 10 rear?

You shouldn't have any rubbing unless you're slammed. Staggered is up to your personal preference.

Thanks Pcemkr.

I am going for 9.5J all around.
ET35 9.5J with 235/35/19 fronts
ET30 9.5J with 265/30/19 rears


I am expecting it to be 'no rubbing' setup on pre-LCI E90.
Kindly correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks.

You shouldn't have any rubbing, but I think staggered tires on square wheel widths is dumb.

I read on this forum that 265/30/19 fronts on 9.5J with 35 ET will rub.
And I do not want to take any risk. Other reason is that I have two 235/35/19 tyres sitting in my place.

It may be dumb but less chances of rubbing.

I'm kinda with you on this one. Most people run square widths for better handling, but the OP is negating the advantage by stretching his front tires. Very odd.

235 on 9.5" is not stretch

I would just run 235-245 all around

noob question...
Why do people use 265/30/19 on rear 9.5J?
Is it to have wider rubber and more grip?

Just to drag an an old thread, I've fitted 9.5 et 27 up front and it rubs loads, not on thd arch but the inner against the strut. It was fine at oem height on standard struts but fitting coils means it runs against the adjusters and the springs. Need et 24 really and pulled fenders.

What's your tire size? There are plenty running 19x9,5 et33 w/235/35-19 tires front which fit without rubbing. That offset places the wheel even 6mm more towards the strut, meaning you shouldnt rub against the strut if you run the same tire size... Depends on the coil though...

Stock suspension definitely has pretty solid inner clearance. I think we ran 19x9.5 ET33s up front on an E92 before but that was on stock struts.

I have 235/35/19 with with et 27 19" and FK highsports, they aren't particularily wide sompared to other coils, but obviously where the adjusters are is a lot lower thyan then where a standard spring on a strut sits and hits the wheel. I could squeeze ET25 but cant get 2mm spacers so will have to run ET 24.
