285 tires on an e92 ... done it

So, Linea Corse Dyna ... standard offsets (+30F +37R) ... Michelin PS2s and they are actually 275s but measure the same as Toyo 285s ... over 11 inches wide !!!

No fender roll, no rubbing

Michelin PS2 275's with no roll! Not bad man,

I have a et35 9.5 with 275 PS2's and I needed an extremely minor roll.

What size tires up front? 235 ps2's? I am trying to get my front wheels to stop rubbing my sway bar and want to put a 5mm spacer on my 8.5 et35 wheels, which would in effect give me et30, and if you tell me that you're fitting 235's up front i'm pulling the trigger!

Is that a 10" wheel? Why do they look stretched?

My Hankook 275s look like this on a 10" (ET 38):



I've been thinking of going with 285/30/19 next time since there's some room on the fender side. It might be cutting it close inside though (suspension components and wheel-well liner).

yeah ... 10". Not sure. Our section widths are the same, but my tread width is about .5" wider. All i can figure is the lip design of the Linea Corse.

I'm actually surprised that the fat PS2 didn't look fatter on your wheels.

Im guessing your running a 35 profile on the 285s. You think Continental 3s in 295 will work on an e92?

No ... with 400# on the rear end, there was barely a half finger gap. Now, it the wheel was a 10.5 with a +47 offset, sure, probably fit no problem.

Zoeb ... hint hint !!!

pretty sure thats it. they look huge on the car. the pics were to focus on how they fit up in the fenders and such. There is not much room. We need a wheel with more offset ... like a 42-47 to tuck that sucker in there. then a fat 285 or narrow 295 would be cake. Thing is, to go from a 275 to 285 Michelin adds half an inch in width.

Sorry to say, but that is going to take some MAJOR work !!! SC3 in 295 is 12.2 wide ... thats 1.2 inches wider than mine. With the absolutely perfect offset, it would barely squeak by. You would need a 10" wheel with a 47 offset at least. I can climb under mine and measure to give you exact measurements ... but you will be cutting it crazy close !!!

I did it as well but took some fender work/rolling with standard offset on 9.5" rim... No cutting though. I have v12's 285x30x19 and 245x30x19
