***Will these fit*** URGENT

Okay so my tires are about to blow and i am debating on buying VMW VB3 with federal tires or just buy new tires for my 162s. I need to make a decision before sunday!

Front: 19x8.5 ET35 245/30/19
Rear: 19x10 ET25 275/35/19

Will the rears fit on my car if i raise just the rear back to stock height and partially raise the front?

These should fit without even raising the car, maybe even some fender rolling will help depending how low you wanna go.

Roll the rears and I would raise slightly because I think it looks a little lower than the front.

We also make a 19x10 +38 which will be a better fit if you want to run a larger tire, +25 is a bit aggressive on a 275. If you want the wheel itself to be flush, you'll need to run a small stretch.

ET 25 on 18x10 won't fit.

Are these M3 fitment TR MT1s?

I have the same setup; with 265s in back they rubbed, with rolled fenders they rubbed, finally I had to SHAVE MY FENDERS and I run 275s in back.

Attached is how my car sits. (my fronts are 18x9 tho.)

Was that a typo on the tire sizes? They should be 245/35/19 and 275/30/19.

I'm sorry PSUSMU, I have this exact setup on my car. The 18x10 rims will fit, but his size tires will rub even with a roll. I had to shave mine to run 265s, I now run 275s with no problems.

Lci? Or prelci? Lci has 8mm less space in the rears so 10 et25 would be the same as 10 et17 on a prelci.

I run style 95s. 19x10 et 24 in the back and i dont rub at all but I do have a 265 30 19. Some 275 30 19 stretch more like falken tires. I do have my rears rolled though. I get " how the hell did you get these to fit" all the time and I think flush is pure sexy but too much stretch.
