Please help(have searched) fitment question 19" M3 wheels

Will a set of 19" M3 rims with 245/35/19 front and 275/30/19 rear fit with our a problem. I Searched and found that the rims will fit with standard tires. I could not find anything on plus size tires.

offset front = 47
offsett rear= 27

Thanks for the help!!!!!!

you wont have a problem in the front, but i dont know about the rear. i ran 275 30 19 rear beofer but the offset is not 27. something like a 35 offset with no rubbing issue. you can run 265 30 19 with no problem.

Thanks!! Do you know if the 27 offset is going to be an issue?

If I am getting the math right then the tire will sit .8in or 23mm more outboard than with the stock 255/35/18. It will also be .5in taller.

That would put the tire almost flush with the fender. Is that too far?

I'm pretty sure 47 upfront will be tucked in so far that you're going to rub on the strut or caliper. You need to be in the mid to upper 30 range up front. 9.5" rears down to 25-27mm are fine.

the front you should run atleast a 10mm spacers, as for the rear you should be fine depending on how low you are.
