I have 19in oem m3 staggered wheels on my e90 and they rub in the rear. What is the most tire stretch I could go? I am running a 275/30/19 right now. Need help ASAP!

e46 m3 wheels or the e90/e92 ones. What tire size are you running right now. Are you lowered? Fenders rolled?

If i'm not mistaken the rear for the e92 M3 (M220) is 19x9.5 (+23) and is run on a 265/30/19. So if you ran a 255/30/19 you should be good.

well the 19" e46 wheels are 19x9.5 (+27) So you should be able to run a 265/30/19 tire. Is it rubbing really bad or just on big dips?

You should not be rubbing what so ever. What tire is on it. Sometimes that matters. My buddy has the exact same setup same car and stock.

Cheapest easiest thing is to roll your fenders.

Offsets are 19x9.5 et 27

No way you should be rubbing at stock height unless your shocks are gone.

a 265/30/19 from a tire with more rounded sidewalls should be fine. FK452, T1R/T1 Sport, should be ok

Honestly if you want the safest route do 255 30 19 which is not a stretch on these and are OEM specs on them. I literally just went in my buddies car 5 minutes ago with a packed car and it was fine.
