Rear tire fitment help - E92, ET30, 9.5x19"

Hi guys,

I have an e92 with rear offset et30 rims, 9.5x19", and I'm searching for used tires that won't rub (I don't want to roll fenders).

I found 2 sets:
1) Michelin Pilot PS2, 265/30/19.
2) Bridgestone Potenza runflat, 255/30/19.

Anyone know if these rill rub? Does the 255 Bridgestone look too stretched on a 9.5x19" rim?

Thanks guys!

Do you have the OEM sport package drop?

I have the OEM sports package. I'm running 19"x9.5" rims in the back, with 265/30 tires and haven't had any rubbing issues without rolling my fenders. However, I plan to do some kind of more aggressive aftermarket coilover or spring drop and would definitely need to roll my fenders. Hope this helps.

oh shoot.. sorry, how do i move this thread

I have OEM sport suspension, no drop. 808 speed, what tires are you running? I researched and found that more square sidewalls like General UHP will rub.
