265 Front Tires for e90 328i LCI for STX Class?

Is anyone running 265 front tires for autocross? If so, how did you make them fit? I have a LCI 328i, and I'm trying to see if I can fit those tires up front. I'm running -2.7 camber up front and lowered on AST suspension. I also have 17x9 wheels. Thnx.

I'm running a 255/35/18 up front on -2.8 camber on an LCI 335 e92 with AST 5200 suspension and I have plenty of room left to run a 265/35/18. You should fit them fine depending on your wheel offset.

Do a search on HP Autowerks E90 335i. When I met with them at the Redline Time Attack at AutoClub Speedway back in 2009, they were running on 265/35/18 up front.

Thanks. I'll do a search for the HP Autowerks 335i. I'm currently running 255/40/17's all round now with the Apex 17x9 et 42 wheels with a 15mm front spacer with no rubbing. I have the Dunlop Star Specs. I'm just trying to see what someone else has done to make them fit so that I can replicate it.

Thanks. I checked the data on tirerack, and it looks like the 255 Star Specs are wider than the 245 R1's.
