Fitment Advice AG M359 E93

So my car was rear ended and long story short, the car is still in the body shop 7 weeks later.

They mentioned my tread is pretty low (currently on conti DW's and I like them but might want something with more grip). They are a bit stretched, so the guys at the body shop said they could shave my inner fender to fit a meatier tire like a 285 in the rear.

I think a 275 + spacer is ideal. So here's my info.

E93 on stock sport suspension. Wheels are AG M359 19x9 ET 35 front and 19x10 ET 38 rear. I'm thinking of bumping my 235/265 conti DW's to falken fk452's that are 245/275. Then see if a 10mm spacer would also work with the shaved fenders.

Any one have advice? I know E93MAC currently runs the falken tires (in my conti sizes) with a 15mm spacer in the rear and he has no fender modifications. So that leads me to think the 275 ET 28 would be fine. Maybe even take it to ET 26 with a 12mm spacer.

Thank you!

hey blindside!

That will work just fine especially if you have fender modification done. I have done that set up before and it looks great

If you have any more questions about fitment or want a quote on a wheel and tire package let me know

Thanks so much for the info! While searching I came across a guy running the 275 falken on an E92 and no fender work with no problem.

Yes please I'm very interested in a tire quote. I guess the sizes I want are 2x front 245/35/19 and 2x rear 275/30/19 (I believe are the right numbers) for the falken fk452. If you have the Continental Extreme Contact DW as well let me know. I've liked the DW tires a lot but might want to change.

Thanks a lot, I've seen that before and am happy to see it again. Although I know there are minor differences in coupe/sedan/vert rear fitment options. But the fronts are the same I believe. The only issue I've found is 245 up front can run slightly on the cooling vents.
