Help - will these fit

Hey guys, HELP

I have a 335xi coupe and just purchased some wheels and was wondering if these will fit.

The wheels are -19x8.5 for the front – rubber will be 235/35/19 35 offset
-19x10.5 for the rear – rubber will be 265/30/19 40 offset

The car will be dropped with H&R springs. About 1.2" dropp.

Is a 275 tire for the rear too wide???

I posted on the wheels section but no reply yet.

Thanks for your help.

The rear could use a spacer...et 40 sit all the way inside and looks like crap..front will be fine


265 on a 10.5" rim will look stretched

Why would you buy wheels without knowing the fit first?

NO need for spacers. Reason being that he has 10.5 inch wide rear. More than not he probably bought the EXM1 wheels because those are the exact specs. If spacers are installed in the rear it will rub like crazy.

To the OP: The way your set is now is perfect, just mount the 265 because anything wider will most likely rub. Here is a picture of the 10.5 rear with ET40 and 265 it's really close to the rear fender.
