Largest Tires on 19" for E92 with out Mods

I just bought staggered 19" rims with a et 33 in front and et 35 rear. What's the largest tires I can run on them with out doing any Mods to suspension nor fenders. The car is not lowered but my goal is to close the gap between the fender and tire. The tire shop recommended:

235/35 front
285/30 rear

I'm also wondering if i can run 285/35 in the rear for a smoother ride? Any input will help thanks guys...

285/35 is no no for sure, even the 30 will likely rub. Some ppl rub with 275 but some don't, depends on the brand of tire. Also, 235/285 will make the car understeer too much, get 245 front if you're willing to make 285 work in the rear by rolling the fenders.

Just went 275/30 and I love it. It is almost 2 inches wider than 265/30

You can do a 275 max with the right offset and tire brand. However, for the best fit, I would stick with a 265.

235/285 is going to understeer like none other. I would try to stick with 235/265, or if you are daring 245/275. The ET33 rears are perfect for 265 tires.

more like 10mm. you'd need a 305 for it to be 2 inches wider.

My nerd skills came out, its 325. You would need a 325 rear tire for it to be TWO inches wider than a 265

Thanks everyone for the input. I wanted to make a correction to my original question. The et for the rears are 33 not 35. Nick, i just purchased the Miro CSL reps. Now, can 275 fit on the rear with a et of 33 and if so, which brands have you guys seen mounted with out problems. Thanks

Anything is possible when you set your mind to it. If you want to run 285's you certainly can but you would have to really roll the fenders, get some crazy wheel spacers, and run some CRAZY camber in order for it not to rub. I would suggest sticking to 265... That seems to be the comfortable medium for a 335i.
