Wider Tire Setup Question on my 335is

Guys - So I'm going wider on my 335is - 255/35/19 in the front and 275/3x/19s in the rear (Michelin Pilot Super Sports) - I don't have any spacers or lowering springs. My question is should I go 275/30 (to match BMW specs of 30) or go 275/35 in the rear? Is there a performance reason or a look reason, or does it even matter?

Has anyone done this? Do you think there will be rubbing?

Thanks,

M

Since you are already going wider, i would go with a 30 series tire in the rear to make sure you don't have any clearance issues.

There is a thread under wheels and tires that's has various wheels and drops. I would start there and see what others have done with 275. 255 seems to wide in fronts. I rub at 80% turn radious on the inside front fender cover. 235/35 19

Definitely go with 30 in the rear. You will.sit to high. I have 265/30 19 and they felt better than 255/35 18 RFs.

M PSS, FTW!

So I went with 275/30s in the rear.

I went with 245/35s in the front, but it seems to be rubbing a little (don't have any spacers) and I'm probably going to go down to 235/35s

Best,

M
