Tire Fit

Hi Everyone,

I just got a set of rims from an M3. They are 19X9 in the back and 19X8 in the front. The tire size in the back is 265 35r 19 and the front is 245 35 19. I drive a 2011 e92 LCI. When I mounted them today, the back rubs a bit. Is there anything that I can do to fix this? Suggestions?

Offsets? The rear tire is too tall but you might want to go down to a 255/30/19 depending on the offset.

^^ agreed. You'll need a 255/30 or 265/30 in the rear. The 35's are a bit too tall. Since you're rubbing, you can either swap out your tires to the proper size or have your fenders rolled and/or pulled to prevent rubbing. Any photos of the fitment?
