official: all wheel drive and staggered Offsets

YES ITS FINE!!!

make sure your overall tire diameters are the same for the front and the back, thats all that makes a difference

overall tire diameter = rolling diameter

Get the ZCP wheels from Tischer, it's the best price possible and get tires from Tirerack.com

Mine has just been shipped today

Anyone with an e90 xi running 235/3519 and 275/30/19? Any problems with the rear width?

I ask because rolling diameter is closer with 275's vs. 265's

i run the tire size you are inquiring about.

Front et34 and rear et30, I'm dumped on KW V3's pretty low and there's not rubbing whatsoever.

go for it!

245's SHOULD work in front.

hell the goodyear place that put on my 19's put one of the rears (265) in front on accident and i didnt notice for a week. it stuck out a bit width wise, which is how i finally found out, but it only rubbed when i turned the wheel ALL the way pulling hard left or right.

anyway, 235/35/19 F and 265/30/19 R fit just fine and look sweet with a drop. just about to get my 2nd set of rims that size and they look sickly wide on the e90

But you have an E90, its a bit tighter in the front for the E92's. Though it's still pretty cool that the 265's only rubbed little.

So, does this mean that I can go with 19s staggered from the BMW performance catalog and won't have any issues with fitment?
