DRs for 189

What are you using for DRs on style 189 wheels? These are going to be backup wheels for me so for fun I thought about throwing on DRs. Can you put 265s on them as well? Poked around on tirerack and searched, didn't come up with anything.

I have a E36 M3 with 8.5 all aroung and I have 265/30/19's in the rear. The tires are absolutely flush with my wheels. They DO NOT protrude outwards. I don't know about DR's since they tend to be a much taller tire. But to answer your question yes 265 fit just fine.

ON a side note, there are a bunch of nice DR's from many brands. Nitto makes a nice one, and so does, Falken.

Closest thing i can find that might fit is falken rt-615, 265/35/18... anyone have any other ideas? These would be going on my OEM 189 wheels, not my m6 reps.

Bump...

Has anyone put BFG P275/35R18 TA DR tires on 189s in back? Seems like these would be too big??? This would just be for the strip, not daily driving.
