Square setup on E92

Tried searching for this but not seeing a concentrated volume of this specific topic.

I am hoping to find the widest tire/wheel combo(s) that people have actually fit on an e92. Post sizes of your wheels (diameter x width +offset) and tires. Include if you rolled fenders or not. Pictures are appreciated.

Much obliged. DG.

Thanks, marcel_b, for the info. May I ask what weels they are (on my way to check your thread at the moment - excuse me if the answer is there...) DG.

EDIT: Got it, thanks!

i am on a stock zsp suspension (and alignment), with 19 x 9.5 +33 square VMR V701 on 255's all the way around, and the only rub i get is a slight cosmetic one on the right front inner fender at parking lot speed (less than 10 mph) with full lock to the left. It's so light you almost don't hear it.

The balance of the car however...... she's dialed. E92's need a square set up, the car is close to 50/50 weight balance, so logically it makes sense you'd want similar sized tire front and rear. Turner and Dinan do it for a reason!

I have some rubbing with 265 square, but just with full lock when parking, not a big issue. The rubbing is in front of the fender (so not because of compression).
With 255x35x18 square, which I use in summer, I have no rubbing what so ever.

I totally agree that the E92 needs a square set-up. The car behaves so nice, so neutral to slightly oversteer which is great for turning. Understeer is gone!
