fitment help please

I have a set of rims

19x9.5 ET33 5x120 rear
19x8.5 ET35 5x120 front

that i'm trying to fit on my e92 328i, the car is dropped on st coilovers and the tires that came with the rims are too wide since i'm tucking tire in the rear, the fronts fit fine but when i turn the wheels rub against the fender lining.

does anyone know what size tires I can run so that i can tuck the rear without rubbing and in the front so that I won't rub the lining when i turn?

thank you,
Jon

For those wheel specs we recommend a 235/35/19 and 265/30/19 tire size. What are you running right now?

I had the miro LM reps in those same sizes with the H&R Race springs tucking rear wheels and I had at least 10mm to spare. I put 12mm spacers on the rear and it rubbed when someone rode in the rear.

It will depend on how low you are, but in general that's the sizing we recommend. We can't guarantee anything on lowered cars, however we have plenty of customers who are lowered.

255 front and 275 or 285 rear though is quite wide!

19x8.5 ET35/19x9.5 ET33 or 19x8.5 ET35/19x10 ET38 will fit without any issues. Tire sizing we recommend is 235/35/19 and 265/30/19.
