hmmm sounds dangerous to me, as the wheel will stick out past the fender and if you're lowered you could possibly break fenders at hard turns on inclines.

FYI, my lowered E92 broke a fender with 235/35/19 on a 19x8.5 ET30 with a Falken tire....

cost me about $1,400 to fix.

19X10 et20
255 kumho tires
rolled fenders

I'm currently on stock height and get slight rubbing on BIG bumps.
I have H&R race but I was told it would be impossible to fit because wheels will hit fender :S

Looking to get H&R sport and adding some neg camber in the back do you guys think it can work out? How much camber should I go with?

if you are talking about rear, it should work with fender roll and -2 neg cambers, especially with 255s. i know kumho is on bit of a wider side though but it should work.

the Dinan camber plates looks interesting... did you think -0.7 degrees are enough?

how much of drop? even if it clears when it settles, it doesn't mean that you are 100% safe. when you go over dip or bump it might rub or crack your fender at worst scenario if you go too aggresive but i think that should work theoretically, considering the mild drop

Robmaster...I would also reach out to Long Tran, I know he has done some aggressive stuff on the E92, you just don't want a broken fender... It's both an eyesore and expensive repair.

I'm going with some V713/Hankook V12's soon.

Running:
19x8.5 35 235/35
19x9.5 33 265/30

I plan on running 5mm spacers upfront for 30 offset overall. That should be fine.

The question is for the rears.
- Should I just buy 22 rears instead?
- Or should I just stick with 33 offset and 5mm spacer for 28 overall?
- Will it rub if I'm not rolled or lowered?
- Do I need to lower it first or can they be installed with stock suspension?

In the end, I want an aggressive stance that doesn't rub and doesn't require lots of negative camber. Note: I am okay with slight fender rolling.

Thanks in advance!

-ET22 can't be done without both fender roll and neg camber on e92.
-ET28 still require some fender roll or some neg camber or both depends on tire setup
-i'd suggest to lower it first before you put new shoes on because it does take some time to settle in and once the car settle with new suspension, then you can judge little better how much of camber to apply or whether it will work or not.

i personally think the setup you have above is perfect for e92. just run those and see if you like it or not first...

I've been thru most of this thread and still can't figure it out for sure:
- on stock E92 M-sport 193 style, 8.5 18" ET37 rear 255 tyre can I fit 15mm spacers w/o other modifications? Or is 12mm the max?
- If one sees rubbing, where does it typically start on the fender / inner wheel arch? The german TUV approval documents seem to suggest stage 1 is to modify only the inner wheel arch in certain areas, and stage 2 is fender rolling?

Thanks!

modifying inner wheel arch is same thing as minor fender roll. if you are willing to do so, i'd say go ahead on 15mm but otherwise, i personally wouldn't try any more than 10mm just to be on the safe side... or run some neg camber...

Ok, so forget the RDsport RD2's. Just to much for me to deal with trying to fit them on the e92. So here's option # 4,275. j/k. VMR VB3's sizes 19x8.5 et40 235 or 245/35/19 (will 245's fit on the front of e92) 19x10 et38 275/30/19 lowered on koni yellows with HR sports. Tires will be Toyo T1R's. Will the 275toyos fit in the rear without rubbing or do I need to roll. I am trying not to stretch the tire much and I know the toyo's run thinner than most. Any advice would be appreciated.

I will need to pull my Alignment SHeet, it's somewhere in my car, but my wheel alignment guy did it, I think even stock E92's have a bit of negative camber.

it might actaully works without fenderroll. 245 on front is what i run now. i would just try it and if it rub then try with neg camber... you need new alignment with new set of rims/tires anyways...

I now have Breyont Race GTS's in 19x8.5 for my front end and 19X9.5 for my rear end. The tires for my front end are PS2's 245/35/19 and for my rear are 275/30/19.

I read this entire thread and I am still confused. Will I run into any rubbing issues?
