If you don't like turning or taking bumps. You will break the plastic Fenders on E92's. I broke a fender with 19x9 ET 30, but i was lowered.

Huh, I have the same question, but with an 18" wheels, and 255 tire. Seems like it would work out about the same.

Are you sure, because I am also running only an 18" rim with 255/35/18 tires. Seems like the other guys are having no problem with the 245 tire on a 19 rim. Isn't that essentially about the same, or actually even a little bit less?

What?

255/35 on 18x9.5" et23 front will definitely rub if lowered and not cambered.

Doesn't only having an 18" rim give me more room though? Plus, I will be running Bilstien coilovers, so they are nice and firm but still ride great. I can get a smaller tire, thats no problem, or rolling the fenders is also only a few hours out of my day. Where are you thinking it will rub? On the top or sides of the fender well? Like I said, I can get new tires for the front, what would you recommend? Im thinkin 245 or maybe 235, but I really don't like the stretched look at all.

It doesn't matter if you have a 18" or 19" wheel... the overall rolling diameter of the tire is nearly the same because you use a different aspect ratio.

I would think that minus one inch of wheel would be like minus about 12 or so mm of "aspect ratio" Though I really have no idea what I am talking about. I think that with a 235 tire I will have no problem either way. Do you agree?

Go with the aggressive look, you will not be disappointed. 235 or 245/35/19.

I have stretched 225s on a 9.5. The work fine without going flat due to bad roads.
