Offset and Tire Help!?

Hey will 17x8.5 +25 fit up front on a e92? I am lowered.

Also, is it possible to run a 245 tire?


Will a 17x9.5 +35 take a 285 tire on a lowered e92?

Keep in mind I will be running NT555R or NT05R tires.

You could run a 245/35 front lowered depending how low you might need some camber. I ran a 245/35 on a 10 et below 20 had 1.3 camber in the front and folded the front fenders.

The rear you can fit a 285/30 which I ran on a 11.5 rim with aggressive offset had about 2 camber in the rear and fenders were cut and shaved

This is a 245/35 on a 10 rim with low offset and 1.3 of camber

This is the rear with 3.2 camber which was to much and ended up at 2.2 to straighten it out a bit. On a 11.5 with a 285/30 with low offset

And this is it straighten out with less camber a cleaner look

Pretty low as you can see of coarse with that there is still some rubbing going that aggressive

Well they are 17x8.5 fronts and 17x9.5 rears.

I want beefy tires. I don't care about being stanced out as that isn't really practical.

I'm sick of going sideways in 3rd gear lol
