AG 359 tires

I was one of the first to purchase the AG 359's and mount them on an E90 LCI, and at the time i was told that only Falken 452's with the following setup would work without rubbing:

265/30/19
235/35/19

My Falkens are now approaching time to be replaced and I was wondering has anyone tried any other brands with any luck with this specific setup? I do not want to try something that hasn't been tried as the Falkens were fine.

The Hankook V12 EVO's are awesome tires to consider. They tend to have better reviews than the 452's.

I meant to say you shoudnt have a problem with Conti DW. I have them the same size you posted and the side walls arent that wide. Hankook V12 will work too.

I would say stay away from Michelin PS2/PSS and Bridgestones. They tend to have larger sidewalls.
