Smile E90 Flush Tire Fitment?

Hey everyone! So I purchased some wheels, matte black, Miro 111, 2 weeks ago, and this week i'm going to buy some tires. What tires will give me the best, aggressive, "flush" look, with wheel size 19x8.5 ET 35 and 19x9.5 ET 40 on my 2010, 335i (E90). I have some spacers, but I am considering getting larger spacers (Current spacers, 10mm and 12mm spacer). Possibly, 225/35/19 (Front) and 245/35/19 (Rear)? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!! (If possible, post pictures with similar combo in this discussion.)


My current setup.

What i'm going for.

To get the flush look you'll need wide wheels and aggressive offsets. Your set up is on the conservative side. You can fake it by using spacers. Something like 15mm all around.

I think that i'm go the large spacer route. Do you think a 20mm (rear) and 15mm (front) spacer will work?

all the fitment in the world still isnt going to make your car "flush" until you have a properly adjusted suspension to go with it. especially with those miro wheels.

that said, i'd throw on 12mm spacers up front, 20mm spacers in the rear, 215/245 tires front/rear. and drop the car. stretch tires look retarded on a stock height car.

Thats the plan. I'm probably drop it in month or two once I get the wheels on. I'm going to order some tires in sizes 225/35/19 and 245/35/19 tomorrow. How much of a difference would the comfort be from 225 be from 215?

If you're going to drop it then go ahead and run stretched tires. If you don't plan on dropping it soon then your ride will look retarded as stated by Editaynine.

The difference shouldn't be anything drastic but running from the 225 to 215.

Update: I lied, I didn't order them, going to order tires tomorrow though. Well, on my way over to Sams Club, I was going to order some tires in sizes, 225/35/19 (Front and 245/35/19 (Rear), but then I changed my mind. I convinced myself on getting tire sizes 245/35/19 (Front) and 275/30/19 (Rear), I want to go for that "beefy" rear look, but most importantly, still have that awesome handeling. Reading on the forums, looks like tire sizes 245/35/19 (Front) and 275/30/19 (Rear) will fit on E90. Can anyone confirm please? I'm still planing on getting coilovers, possibly a fender roll (Most likely) and having spacer setup, 12mm front and 15mm rear. All help is appreciated.. Thank you. (Miro 111 19x8.5 ET 35 and 19x9.5 ET 40)

245/35's up front won't give you much room to drop it I wouldn't think....

Good luck and the beefy look will be awesome. You'll need to roll your fenders though to avoid rubbing. Other than that, you'll be good until you decide to lower the car.

Thanks!!! I can't wait!! I hope my car wont look like Ford F150 (size hight) with these tires. Defiantly going to consider a fender roll once I slap on these wheels and possibly coilover kit if my car looks lifted.

Same tires I was considering but Discount Tire actually has 'em cheaper believe it or not.

Still interested in your M-sports by the way.
