xi's sit pretty high up so no you wouldn't need one, but unless you decide to lower your car a little bit later you will need to roll or trim the back inner fenders.

My question is, since my xi, is sitting a bit higher than the non-xi. Will i still need to do a fender roll in the rear? If so, what do you guys think about running square tire set up on these staggered wheels?


Thanks in advanced!

Digging this up from the dead, but I've got an M Sport LCI E90. Anyone know where I can find the 260s? Or 219s?

i would have thought that 255/40 would have given you the closest front to rear match, but you went for closest rear to OEM non M route - correct?

Is it true that M3 has taller sidewall or 2% difference on rear versus fronts? I had no idea! (and I really like the chnunky tyres, but the 245 tyre on front, damn, your car must tramline like a pig!).

I want the same. I prefer the look of 260, but need more offset for my 2009 e90lci. Any vendors with info, let me know!

Super helpful post. I have an E90 330xi 2006 without any modifications (ie. lowering, etc). I am looking at a set of these exact wheels and tires. I expect I will have to roll my fenders to get these to work, but do you think I would still experience rubbing after I roll the fenders (keeping in mind my car isn't lowered)?

Just wanted to see if anybody had fitted 255/35R18 rears on the style 219's as I just bought a set with 245/40R18 front and 255/35/18 rears for my '07 328i...From what I've gathered in the various threads on the topic, 265/35 rears barely rub, I'm hoping the 255/35 rears wont rub in my case. I know people were reluctant to use 255's in the rear because they would look stretched, but I don't mind a little bit of stretch for awesome rub-free fitment

If nobody tried yet I'll come back in here to post the results.

Picked the wheels up today, and confirming that there is NO rubbing whatsoever with the 255/35 rear tire. I've driven about 100 miles with my four stock wheels/tires in the back (200lbs worth of weight in the trunk and on the back seat) and it never rubbed.

The tire is a bit stretched but nothing too obvious and I have to say, the setup overall is amazing, completely changes the look of the car!

I am running the same setup (219M on an E90) but with a 255/35/18 rear Michelin PS2 tire in the back and am getting ready to lower on HR Sport springs. (the gap in the front is driving me nuts)

I have the OEM sport package already. Should I expect to rub in the rear? I have almost 2 fingers worth of clearance from rear tire to rear fender. Much help is appreciated!

You will be just fine with 255's and H&R sport springs. The rear drop is maybe a 1/4 of an inch lower than the Eibach Pro-Kit springs. Enjoy the improved stance.

awesome! thanks! I'll post my results in this thread since it seems to be a lot of help. I know it was for me when I decided to purchase these wheels for my E90.
