Rear tire fitment help - E92, ET30, 9.5x19"

Hi guys,

I have a stock sport suspension e92 with rear offset et30 rims, 9.5x19", and I'm searching for used tires that won't rub (I don't want to roll fenders).

I found 2 sets:
1) Michelin Pilot PS2, 265/30/19.
2) Bridgestone Potenza runflat, 255/30/19.

Anyone know if these rill rub? Does the 255 Bridgestone look too stretched on a 9.5x19" rim?

Thanks guys!

With an E92 and 9.5 +30, I would recommend a 255 to stay on the safe side. Some narrow 265's may clear but if you really don't want to deal with fender rolling, 255 would be a better bet.

Thanks for the info! I'll prob go the route of the 255 just to be safe.

depends on the offset. Most ppl run et35 up front, and have no problems with 235/35.
