285/30/20 rub on E92?

Is anyone running 285/30/20 on E92? Wondering if this will rub a little, rub mildly or rub like crazy.

I did do a search and seems like most people run 285/25/20 for the rear.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Why do you want to run 285/30/20? This is not the correct height. Looking for more protection with a 20"?

But what is your offset? Hard to say if this is going to rub without offset info

I run 285/25/20, I am dropped on kw v2 and rarely rub, not enough to roll fenders. If I had 285/30 im sure it would rub a lot more not to mention look like shit. Some guy on here ran 285/30, was a JB coupe with Iforged, looked like crap in my opinion.

There is plenty of tire under this wheel

I think 285/30/20 looks too large in diametre, 25 profile looks much better.

With 275 there is a little stretch which is the last thing you want to have on a 20inch wheel. 285 looks perfect imo

285/30/20 is too tall and might cause some issues. I would stick with 285/25/20.
