HELP - Will these wheels fit???

Hey guys, HELP

I have a 335xi coupe and just purchased some wheels and was wondering if these will fit.

The wheels are -19x8.5 for the front – rubber will be 235/35/19 35 offset
-19x10.5 for the rear – rubber will be 265/30/19 40 offset

Is a 275 tire for the rear too wide???

Car will be lowered with H&R springs. The dropp is about 1.2".

Thanks,

I think at that offset in the rear, it'll be okay. But i'm sure someone can agree or disagree. B)

I forgot to add that I will have H&R suspension. The drop is only about 1.2"

I think 265 will be a bit too stretched for that size. I think you can use 265 up to 9.5 inches. Once you are 10 inches and wider, you really need to use 275.

If you end up using 275 you can probably also use 245 up front too.

245 up front and 275 rear. Is that too big of a change for the xi system???

I think you should be fine. Dial the numbers into the wheel calculator at the top of the page. As long as the difference is within 3% I think it will be fine.

I should clarify...you can probably use 265 for the rear...but you just got to be careful as you don't want it to look like:



...

unless you like that look.

I already replied to your other thread asking the same question. The 275 will rub on your set up. I speak from experience and because I sell that same exact spec wheel.
