Here's my setup -- Another "Do you think this will rub?" Thread

Everything already purchased but not installed yet. Rims and tires are going on the car no matter what. Just wondering if you think the springs will cause any issues.


M3 EX-M4 (new e92 M3 Reps)
Front: 8.5x19 ET35
Rear: 9.5x19 ET35
Front Tire Size: 235/35-19 new tire dimension 25.48 Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS
Rear Tire Size: 275/30-19 new tire dimension 25.5 Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS

Notes: Compared to OEM 163's, front will have 7mm LESS clearance on the strut side, and the outside edge of the wheel will EXTEND an extra 5mm. Rear will have 11mm LESS clearance on the strut side, and the outside edge of the wheel will EXTEND an extra 15mm.

I am also adding H&R sport springs which, according to specs I've seen, drop the front up to 1.3 and the rear up to 1.2.

Am I safe or is there fender rolling in my future?

I agree with Rob, this is a safe setup. Even if you use a 275 tire size in the rear, you're offset in the rear makes sure you're good from rubbing No worries, do your thing!

Go with a 265/30/19 on your e92. On the KW's you'll have to make sure you get an alignment.

As for as the OP, your setup's good to go. No worries to speak of
