Looking to buy VMR's what size

Hey guys looking to buy some VMR VB3, I have a 07 335i e90 w/ sport package. Fronts would be 19x8.5 40 w/ a 235/35/19 tire and rears would be 19x10 38 w/ a 275/30/19 tire. Would I have any fitment issues or rubbing? Thanks guys

On A combo like that we normally go with a 235/35/19 front and a 265/30/19 in the rear. Are your fenders rolled? Stock suspension?

no rolled fenders and yes stock sport suspension. Wanted the biggest tire on there possible without any problems.

275/30/19 cuts it a little close you might have some rubbing issues with that combo over bumps or with people in the backseat. VMR also recommends the 265/30/19 in the rear.

I'll be installing this exact set up on my 2010 E90 335i this Saturday so I'll let you know. I have an LCI though which as like 10mm less clearance or something like that. My fenders are rolled and I'll be on V2's once I get these installed so I don't know if my experience will help you but I'll let you know anyways.

I personally know you'll need your fenders rolled though. You won't like the scraping sound it'll make when entering a steep driveway or going over a large bump like railroad tracks etc. Not good for your tires or fenders either obviously.

We recommend running a 265/30. A 275 will work if you have your fenders rolled
