19x8.5 ET20 / 19x9.5 ET20 Tire Size?

Hey guys looking for some help here.

Ive searched but getting mixed results. What would be best tire size for this setup?

Im thinking 225/35F and 255/30R?

Car is lowered with rear fenders rolled. Non-M sedan

225/35 and 265/30 would be good since your rears are rolled you won't have to worry about rubbing. The narrower tire should help in the front though.

Hey I just got some 19s for my 328i. I did a lot of reading up on which tire size to use and ending up going with 235/35F 265/30R. It rides great but now everytime I hit a pretty good size bump on the highway I am getting a lot of rubbing...to the point where it is starting to damage the side wall. For you I would advise going to with the 225 in the front and 255 in the rear but i was going to ask how involved was rolling your fenders and how much you spent to get that done? I have stock suspension as well.

Most people run 8.5 et35 with a 235/35/19, but the 225 would be a better choice for 8.5 et20.
