Anyone running style 193 SQUARE 8.5in?

I have the OEM staggered setup of 8in front and 8.5in rear 193 M sports on my e92. looking to get them square using the rear fitment all the way around.

has this been done?

anyone have pics? I would really appreciate it! Looking to get beefier in the front and allow for rotation. then just put a 12mm spacer in the rear.

Pretty sure this is known to work just fine but if you have a staggered set now and want to confirm fitment of the 8.5s at the front just swap the fronts to the rears and see how it goes.

I was thinking about doing that too just wondering if anyone had pictures. also, from reading it looks like not many people put a 255 tire on the front?

I'm going to be running a 255 square setup on a 18x9. My tire place messed up the tire change over a couple of seasons ago with my stock staggered setup and they put one of the 255s in front and it didn't rub. It took me a couple of days to notice (I noticed because my tires seemed to be unbalanced)

If you want to see how it looks you can leave the rear on one side and then put the rear from the other side on the front to get both rears on the same side.

It's not super common but plenty of people run 255 up front with no problem.

Going to my favorite indy shop for brake fluid flush. I am going to see if they will put it on the rack and swap them for a minute so I can see. I will post a pic if I get one.

Now, I just need someone willing to sell a pair of rears

Buy a full set if you have to and sell the set of 8s to someone that's looking to install winter tires on OEM wheels...this really isn't all that exotic of a concept.

swapped them around at the shop and forgot to snap a pic. Swapping the rears to the front fits ok. They clear the strut and the wheel can turn lock to lock. this is on stock msport suspension. Now, just need to make this happen.
