Talking Will I Rub?

Sorry if this has been discussed before, guys, but there are too many posts for me to go through and find this exact set up.

Front: 19x8.5 +32 on 245/35/19
Rear: 19x10 +20 on 275/30/19

Car is an E92 with standard suspension. I'm sure the rear fenders will need to be rolled. I'm more worried about the front fitment.

Thanks,
Wes

Any idea how badly? I figured that the rear fenders would need to be rolled, but I'm worried about the front fenders since they cannot be rolled.

edit: actually, I believe the rear offset is +25, not +20

Thanks. As long as a roll will fix the rubbing in the back, I'm fine.

You will rub with 275's. Rounded 265's such as Toyo's or Falken's will work with your +25 along with a fender roll and some camber.

8.5 +32 with a 245 is cutting it close. I would recommend a 235 front.

10 +20 rear with a 275 is quite aggressive and will require fender rolling.
