well i had the setup and i have an xi just so your aware the fronts will rub when you turn and will wear out the plastic in your wheel well and the rears will rub pretty harsh bad over bumps if your willing to roll your fenders and have a shitty ride quality steering wheel shakes constantly then do it lol

Alot of us are running 235/35 and 265/30 on 19x8.5 / 19x9.5

that would be more of a safee tire set up on 19's. I cant say if you will rub with those tires you stated above, but i would guess yes.

you need to check the offsets of those wheels though.

ive had those on my previous 08 335xi before it got totaled and i only had it for 2 days so i didnt expereince much... i liked the 235/35 with 265/30 set up but just thought id be a little more flushed given that i have a stock suspension and wont rub at all.... my g35 coupe had 245/40 front and 275/35 rear with and 25mm spacers front with 12mm spacers in the rear with no rubbing dropped with tein s techs on sport shocks

Id recommend the set up i mentioned above.

Alot of vendors sell those tires with the wheels as a package, so depending on the offset of the wheels You will not have to worry about any rub with people in your car/turning/going over bumps etc...

just my .02 cents.

good luck.

I run 235/275 with 19x8.5et20 & 19x9.5et25 on a pre-lci 335xi. I am lowered about 1.5" and pretty flush. With a good alignment there is slight rub in rear because I have not rolled the fenders yet.

depends on wheel offsets and width obviously but the setup you posted is pretty basic..so safe bet is 235/35 and 265/30. If you want to run stretch or need to I should say 225/35 and 255/30 is an option for xi

235/35F and 275/30R are ideal tires sizes for 19".'

However, as mentioned above that may need to change depending on wheel offsets and driving characteristics (more understeer with wider rear tires).

Agreed, for xDrive/xi 235 front and 275 rear tires are better because the xi is all wheel drive you want to keep the rolling circumferences the same to prevent strain on your transfer case.

So 235/275 combo is best:
.35 x 235=82.25mm and .3 x 275=82.5, a .25mm difference.

true.... sounds good... is it that much of a difference going from a 235 to a 245?

Google usually helps. Usually I Google something like: e90post and then the subject I'm looking for.
I'd recommend this subforum: http://www.e90post.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=197

Sorry for coming off the wrong way. Not trying to be sarcastic. I usually find Google better at searching e90post than e90post's own search feature. Too many hidden subforums here to navigate.

If you type in: site:www.e90post.com and another keyword, it limits the searches only to e90post.com. Just trying to be helpful.

I went with B&G springs for my 328xi coupe and Koni Yellows. I've had them on for about 15k miles already and works great. I went for B&G after a few people on this forum had good experiences with them.

Did some research on them and some people like them better then h&r but I'm not trying to slam my car I just wanna eliminate the front gap most of all and not compromise my comfortability. It's my daily driver too.

I think you should be fine with the B&G, my BMW is also my daily driver. With the Koni Yellows shocks you can adjust the dampening to increase or decrease firmness or comfort.

Here's what my setup looks like on 19" 235 35 19 front and 275 30 19 rear

I just don't like that the back drops 1.2" just like the front. I'm looking for 1.2 front and something like 0.8" rear - 1.0" although it's a small incriminate it makes a difference.
