Can I run 275/35/20 in rear

Hello, I was just wondering if I could run a 275/35/20 in the rear with 245/40/20 in the front of an e92. I didn't want my tires to be too thin cause i live in NYC, plus i live in the bronx so you know the potholes are crazy. I got the wheels already they are sevas s55 20x8 and 20x10 offset 25.

That tire will be 2-1/2" larger in diameter....that's nuts! Use the calculator above to help you out on size. If your worried about potholes you shouldn't have gone with 20's.

That's too tall for the car. You should run 30 in the front and 25 on the rear with 20's.

I highly doubt you can run +25 offset on a 10" rear WITH 275's and not rub. Even with some serious fender rolling you are going to rub. And +1 to what mtndog said, if you are scared of potholes, why would you even get 20's?

Its not going to work and the front it way way tooooo much. I'm running 225/35/20 up front with a 38front offset and I rub and I'm an E90. Don't go bigger than 275/30/20 in the back with less than a 35 offset. The E92 can run at wide a tire and the E90's. 19's really are the best fit for the E92/E90

In order to run 275, you will need an offset of 40 or so. Again, 245/40/20 front and 275/35/20 rear are too tall and the ET25 is too aggressive for the car.
