275's on e90??

Can it be done?
BTW I searched and nothing really too informative showed up.
Also, I would be curious if 265's all the way around would fit. Thanks in advance!

Check out Dinan's website ... they've got a wheel/tire package that stuffs a 19x9.5 / 265/35-19 combo up front with a 19x10 / 275-30-19 in back. So it's doable with the right offsets apparently. (it mentions spacers for the front, so I'm guessing they're using M3 offsets ... something like et40 front and et25 rear and then pushing the front out by +5 or +10 to get it to clear the strut)

Nobody knows what the offsets are though because I doubt Dinan would tell, and nobody's stupid enough to spend $5300 for a set of Dinan wheels.

I'm really surprised nobody at DPE has tried to duplicate it yet. 19x8.5 / 235/35-19 is safe, but I'd like to stuff as much rubber in as physically possible.

Also, I have to imagine the change in rolling radius on the fronts (225/40-18 vs 265/35-19) has to screw with steering feel a little bit. But maybe not. Why not 265/30-19 which is much closer?

It's Dinan though, so who knows. Chances are they've never actually sold a set to a customer. Or they say it can't be lowered from stock.

I just had a tire shop fit a 225 width tire on my 8.5 inch wide rim
(they mounted a front tire on the rear rim... standard tire is a 255 ) That sucker was stretched like no other...

Not only that, they scratched the rim...


So Im getting a new 162 rim and my mounting and balancing (for 5 tires... 4 on the car and a spare) is coming free of charge

Thanks for the info so far! Any way one could cram 275's on the stock sport package rims (probably a stupid question, but worth an ask)??
Sorry for my limited knowledge on the subject, but thats what a forum is for right?

Although I do not want to speak for Diesel as I think he is running the most agressive set up on this forum. I am pretty sure that 19x10.5 is an absolute no go. since you would probably want to use a 285 with a 10.5 at the very least so I can not image it would fit and especially without rolling the fenders.

Well my rears are 20mm offsets 19x10. You should be able to do it if you use a Falken or Toyo tire. You will need to roll the fenders.

Please keep in mind the difference in tire design. Offset, Width and tire size are important but a 275mm from one brand might fit while a 265mm from another might not.

On the other hand, why in the world would you want 265s all around? Winter?

I just thought that having a wider tire up front would reduce understeer. This kind of setup is what many e46 m3 owners use on their track wheels. I know dinan has 275/35-19 up front and 285/30-19 in the rear which i hear reduced understeer.

Having 265 in front may be pushing it. I run 245 ET40 up front and it's very close to the strut (can't fit a finger between). I tried a 10mm spacer but that brought it too far out. That tells me 265 is going to be a very close fit, if it fits at all.

Also, will 265 fronts (and thus lower profile) your steering will become more sensitive to ruts and grooves in the road.

Dinan's website says they did it. Still want to see some other wheel maker duplicate it though.

235 up front with a 265 out back is too much of a diff for me. Doubt car's going to be as balanced as I'd like.

Can we get pics of your setup? Oh and what brand tires?

I think that a 265, 275 set up would be pretty awesome. Also I agree that a non-staggered set up is preferred by some e46 m3-ers for the track.
