Tires on new VMR v710 18's

I have an LCI e90 335. I also am installing coilovers which will drop the car about the same as an eibach spring, so not an extreme drop.

The wheels are 18x8.5/18x9.5 with 35/33 offset.

What size tire should I go with? I see most go with 235/265 but man Id love to be able to fit 245/275's if I can. (yes i know its retarded, but I love fat tires)

What should I get? Im not interested in rolling my fenders and want to avoid rubbing.

To avoid rubbing with the lowered ride height, I would recommend sticking with the 235/265 setup. These tire sizes will be flush with the rims edge.

235/35/19 and 265/30/19 will be safe. I've seen 245/35/19 and 275/30/19 but it may require a fender roll.

Yep, just adjust the profiles for 18's. You are correct.

I am getting my coilovers installed on thursday and will update with pics. I am thrilled with the wheels and am happy with my decision to get 18s. I prefer them over 19s and the cheaper tires is just a bonus.

Well yeah, I've seen that pic a few times, I try to do my homework on things like this Thanks though. Just don't see many other cars with 18" aftermarket wheels around here. At least not good looking ones...
