How badly will I rub? If at all?

I am currently running:

19"x8.5" ET 35mm Front wrapped in 235/35/19 w/5mm Spacers
19"x9.5" ET 33mm Rear wrapped in 265/30/19 w/10mm Spacers

I want to run Eibach Pro springs. Will I rub with this set-up or will I be okay?

Thanks!

Seems to me ppl on this forum do NOT know much about rubbing situations.
I asked a thousand times and still got no answer.

I'm on 275 rears, 10mm spacers and H&R Sports on my E92 and I'm slightly rubbing.
My mechanic told me it'll eat off the plastic therefore there is no damage to the fender or tire.

Currently I'm rubbing... I have to figure out what I should do though because I just don't feel right hearing the fenders rub my tires every time my car's on a slope or I drive over a little bumps.

no its just that people come on this forum and post the most conservative sizes possible and ask if they were rub.

or idiots post thinks like this

"im running 19in wheels with 275 tire. will i rub with an Eibach pro-kit."

use the search, see what people are running and if they rub. there are tons of threads on this. this forum is plentiful with information about wheel and tire sizes. if you think your going to rub, get the means to get your fenders modified.

to the OP, you shouldnt rub, but it should be a close fit with the spacers your running. it also depends on if your tires run wide or run narrow. if it does rub it will be nothing more than a simple fender roll will fix.

Fronts will be fine, rear will more than likely rub.

not directed to OP, but just adding to the thread about this issue on the forums...

I think the problem is that a majority of the people don't realize that "tire rubbing" or "fitment" isn't just about tire size. Nor is it just about wheel width. Nor is it just about offset. It's a combination of EVERYTHING related to it: wheel width, wheel offset, tire width/height, tire brand, car's track width, suspension, camber and fender roll/shave/pull.

You are at the extreme limits. Assuming you have a short sidewall tire like a falken fk452, you might slip by with some fender roll.

I run a similar setup with a tall tire Michelin Pilot Super Sports, and needed grinding and rolling with a 265tire
