XI setup

I know this topic gets killed but I need a bit of help-

I am looking at getting a set of Alufelgen sf-71's with hancook evo 12's

Here is the setup
19x8.5
19x9.5
245/35/19
275/30/19

will this come in under the 1% differential?

It's right at 1%...235/35 up front would be a better match...if you're ever curious, use the wheel calculator in the wheels & tires section

Just fyi, i find the Hankook Evo V12 run a bit wide. We just mounted 275/30/19 on a 19x9.5 rim and it looks like the rubber is a bit wide for the rim itself, like the sidewall rubber is purtruding past the lip of the rim. We had Toyo T1R's before in the same size and it looked fine, but these hankooks run wide.

I'd run 235/35/19 and 265/30/19 if you're running the hankook v12.

I'll post a pic to show you what i mean. The Hankook V12's are amazing tires for the money, i think you'll be happier, aesthetically, with 235 front and 265 rear.

I am always one to recommend going for the widest possible rear (within reason) I have arguably the most square 275 tire (michelin ps2's) and I still wish I could run a little more tire on my 9.5" rims.

I did need a tiny fender roll (literally one light pass with a roller was all that was needed) to fit the 275 ps2's but I am very glad I went with them and 235 fronts (extremely close in diameter).

The tire lip is actually a good thing and act as a "protector" for your rim, at least that's how I feel...

I feel the same, but you should see the Hankook V12 in 275/30/19 on my cousin's 550i sports pkg. rims which are 19x9.5 in the rear. It honestly looks like the sidewalls are sagging.

TXSailor,

I have the SF-71's (8.5/9.5) and Hankook Ventus v12's (235/35, 265/30) with KW V3's. They fit well.

Love it! Going to match exactly- except going with gunmetal on black.

Thanks-

What offsets are those? Do you have a pic of the rears? Would like to see how flush they are.

Since your xi, y don't u run the oem 19" sizes; 225/35/19 255/30/19. U won't rub and rolling diameter is perfect for xi.

Or just go square ....

Tire rack made it all easy just check rolling RPM's just check the rpm and do the math. Personally speaking discount tire has better deals.
