Will this work?

I ordered me some Miro LM-r reps:

19x8.5 ET35 & 19x10 ET33

I was thinking of running:
F: 235/35ZR19 XL General Exclaim UHP
B: 265/30ZR19 XL General Exclaim UHP

How will this work out? I was thinking of possibly doing 275's in the back, but i dont want rubbing and dont want to roll fenders. I am running on stock sport suspension, but will be getting ST coilovers soon.

I am kindova noob when it comes to wheels.

TIA

I'm no expert, but running 10" rear wheel with +33 on a E92 might give you some rubbing. Are you sure about the specs on the rear wheels?

ET33 on a 10" width is equivalent to about ET30 on 9.5". So that setup will rub on the car. On 10" wheels you want to go with something like ET38 or so.

WOW, thanks for the info guys. I PM'd the person who i bought it from and i he said it was actually, ET 32 on the back. Wouldnt that make it more likely to rub on 265's?

Thanks again, I appreciate the feedback.

If your not lowered you should be fine and when you are you can set the
ride height to the right spot so you don't rub

Check into the Linea Corse L22, they have more suitable offsets for E92's

Each half inch of width equals to 6.25mm on the outside and 6.25mm on the inside.

Ahh you're right. I don't know why I kept thinking .5" = 6mm when I know that 1 "=25.4mm.

Hehe, I just might later on. I think i am going to get bored of the wheels in 6-9 months anyways. Then i'll have to get another set to get the new car feel again.

Edit: Zoeb beat me to it.
