Aggressive Fitment Pre-Lci E90

Hey guys I'm about to pick up some Varrstoen E.S. 1.1.2's in 19x9.5 et 20
and 19x11 et 25 and I was wondering what size tires i should be running if I want to go about 1.5 inches lower than the sport suspension. I'm fine with doing fender work and am wanting to run a pretty aggressive but still functional set up. I have been leaning towards the Hankook v12's in 265/30/19 for the rear and 235/35/19 for the fronts. I'm afraid that the 265s may be to big of a stretch in the rear so I am also considering 275s.
My question is will this look aggressive and will it fit? Also, it would be great if anyone who has this set up can post pictures of their car.
Thanks!

You need 225/35 and 265/30 with some camber in the rear.

I ran 18x11" et20 265/35 w/ -3 camber on E90 LCI, so 11" et25 on pre-LCI will be 13mm less than this (it will be true flush):

I now have 18x9.5" et19 225/40 and 18x11" et32 265/35 w/ about -2.5 camber on E90 LCI, which is quivalent to 11" et24 on pre-LCI:

If I was to go 275/30/19 in the rear and 245/35/19 in the front would it fit?
I don't want the tires to be too stretched.
I'm fine with some fender work but I'm not sure if I can fit this without running extreme negative camber.

No.. 245 in front, no way. 275 in rear is possible with a big fender pull and max camber.

You want 225-235 front and 265 rear.

I guess i'll go with the 235 front and 265 rear then.
Will the 265 stretch on the 11 inch wheel affect traction that much?

You will need camber up front on 235 if you're lowered. Stretch won't really affect straight-line traction. It's still the same tire, but slightly smaller contact patch with stiffer sidewalls.

How about my car is low enough that the fenders are right above the fender. With 235/265 tires with OEM spec alignment. No negative camber, no tire tuck. Am I good?

I'm running 275/30 19 & 245/35 19 pilot super sports on my 08 335xi on Dinan wheels. No rubbing whatsoever.

Depends on how low you are though. Stock height you're ok for sure.

Hey lonestar22, was your rear fenders cut? I'm running 265/30/19 on a 19x10.5 et22 with -2.5 camber stock Zsp suspension and still rubs on big dips.

I got 235/35 and 285/30 tires that would fit that setup for you, lmk if your interested in buying. I ran 18x11.5 with 275/30 and never had issues. You will need a mild roll or shave and you can run a 235/35 and. A 285/30. I currently run

19x10 22 225/35
19x12 16 265/30

I have no added negative camber anywhere. All natural from dropping, and I'm one of the lowest e90s. I never rub in the back except rim, fronts only reversing at times. You can easily run that setup with a bit of meat and Minoan l-1 to -2 camber

Why can't he run 245 up front I did and was tucking on my 10". You will be fine with the 245 with minimal camber
