19x8.5F 19x10R... can't figure out tires

Any suggestions for tires which would stay close to each other front to back? Anyone with an xi running this?

Oh, and before anyone says to search... I'm using the mobile app. I'm away from my computer for a bit. I saw suggestions for other size 19s and couldn't find a good match based on rev per mile on tirerack.

I would suggest this but if you're running a 19x10 with a 275 in the rear you might rub depending on a few things.

Is your car lowered (if so with what) and what are the offsets?

That's what I was thinking, those sizes wouldn't work on the rear. I'll be going with Eibach springs, I'm not looking to go too low, just don't want it to look ridiculous on the xi suspension. 19x10 might just be too wide. I was looking at Morr v8.2 wheels. Offsets are + 35 in the front, +38 in the rear. Danniexi, just realized that's what you are running... What sizes and offsets? Oh, and which tires?

Agree with 2Times...You can't even have a discussion like this without knowing the offset of the wheels in question. That then will get you close, then the many different tires options play in with their rounded vs. square edges. And of course, then there is the drop...

Very true!!! Most people I know get the drop first then approach the rim/tire situation afterwards. But if someone else is running exactly you are looking for, everything should work out fine.

Wheels: morr vs8.2, so offsets are those mentioned above.
Suspension: h&r sports + blistering sport shocks

Running 275 in the back. Roll your fenders a little bit and you'll be fine. I haven't rubbed once after getting my fenders rolled.

Nice, just saw that you're running Hankook Ventus V12 evo.

I have e90 335xi sport package I think the suspension is the same though on the XI's any way....I am running

19" x 8.5" front with hankook v12 235/35/19
19" x 10" rear with hankook v12 275/30/19

No problems at all.... It looks like I could even lower it a little and it would be fine....
