e92 wheel/tire fitment. URGENT!!

Hi guys,

I recently got a set of Advan RS wheels 18x9.5 with et+35 all around. The wheel came with rear tires (275/35/18). but I really cant decide what size/profile for the front without rubbing. Can anyone please give me ideas/thought ??? The car is sitting on stock sport suspension.

P.s. Will roll the rear fender to fit the 275.

Any input will be appreciated!!


Thanks

The thing is 9.5 et 35 is around 2mm away from front struts.So not much room to use wider tyres. And probably will rub outside too. I have 9.5 et35 with 235/40 at front.

Ditto. 245 on a 9.5 et 35 will 100% rub up front. I guess you bought used but a 9" wheel would be a better fitment. Stick with the 235s.
