2009 e90 LCI fitment check before tire purchase

Fellas,

I purchased a set of rotiform lasr wheels with the following specs. My car is 2009 335i e90 LCI. Not lowered.

F: 19x8.5 et35
R: 19x10 et40

I am looking to buy some tires that work and wanted to get a check on my proposed setup below to make sure it works without need for fender mods (i will if i have to but don't think it will be required).

F: 235/35/19
R: 275/30/19

I have found proofs of these specs working (http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1208782) but just want a second check to make sure I haven't screwed anything up.

Thanks,

The fronts should be good. The rears I think might also be ok but less confident on that one, mainly because LCI has less room than pre-lci, and mine is pre

Front is good.

Rear: I'm running 18x10 ET40 with a 265/35/18 tire and there is no issue at all with clearance. A 265/30/19 setup has 99.99% identical fitment to my 18" setup in terms of overall diameter. 265/30/19: 641.6mm, mine: 642.7mm. Literally 1mm difference. And obviously width is the same so tread fitment is identical as well.

There's still room for a bit more tire or a spacer on my LCI sedan. You should be okay with that 275, at worst have a tiny bit of rubbing that some camber or fender rolling should resolve. Or just do 265/30 and play it safe.

Thanks I did 265/30 yesterday to play it safe.
