new wheels!

Hi guys I just bought a set of style 95 19X9 and 10 for the XI. Still not sure about my tires! Ofc I need some stretch. 225/35 front and 235/35 rear gives me 1.126% is it too much????.. Limit is 1%..!

You answered your own question. The recommended maximum diameter difference is under 1%. Anything over that isn't necessarily good thing. Go with 225/35/19 front and 255/30/19 rear.

When I do 225/35 on both it gives me 0%. Is it normal? Maybe I could try this?

Of course it is normal, because tyres are the same size, so no difference. You don't need that narrow rear tyre. Like i said 255/30/19 and fender roll to rear. This car has 19x10 et25 with 265/30/19 and fender roll. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=531437

well but the rear is 1 inch wider? why would this still be 0% ? with the stretch it doesn't make the tire lower?

Yeah the calculator doesn't take into account the width difference or the fact that tyres aren't necessarily brand new. It might have very small difference but nothing to be worried about. Still the 225/35 at 10 inch wheel is unnecessarily stretch http://tyrestretch.com/10.0_225_35_R19/ Here is Frode D style 95 with 225/35 and 255/30 setup http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=689691

I ran my style 95 with 225/35 and 255/30. A little stretched but not bad
