Trying something new. 19x9.5 +25 square set up

New wheels... Again. Decide to try a new square set up.
19x9.5 +25 square
235/35/19 front
265/30/19 rear.

Thoughts? I've done everything else in the book. 19x8 - 19x11 all staggered and crazy.

That 9.5 will be a real stretch for that 235.
Otherwise I don't know about the offsets.

Honestly 235 at 9.5 isn't even that stretched. It's in fact approved size for that witdh. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1069084

I'm a little confused, isn't the point of a square setup so that you can swap fronts/rears to maximize tread life? What is the purpose of a square setup with staggered tire widths on a RWD car? (not saying that there has to be a purpose)

I am always impressed with your mod choices when you roll out something new, I was just curious as I have little to no understanding about square setups other than xdrives 'should' have them. I also made my comment before I realized you had xdrive, thought you were RWD.

Your not going to be able to space the rear wheels out since you don't have any stretch. IMO you should get staggered wheels if possible or square tires.

The rears will definitely be spaced out though

I doubt you'll fit much more than a 5mm without any stretch.

Well, I've fit 19x11 +25 and 18x10.5 +20 without rubbing. So, I'm sure I've got some play.

I'm have 11"et28 275/30/19 in the rear so I know those specs work with the right tire size. 265 will not stretch at all on a 9.5" wheel.
