275 rear tyre...

I'm thinking of going 275 on 9.5" alloy as the 265 has a bit of a stretched look....

Now is anyone running this set up and is there potential for rubbing?

Posted in wrong section first I think, bloody work have blocked e90 post and I have to make do on my phone between 9&5!!!

+1 I'm running 275/30/19 with Michelin Pilot Supersports which are noticeably wider than other tires in the same profile with no rubbing. My wheel width and offset are the same as Skelts. I think a normal width 285/30/19 would probably fit with the correct offset.

Falken 453's fitted and we have rubbing....



Alloys are ET35 Cades Apollos. It seems to be the rear half of the arch which a friend will hopefully roll this week.

Any ideas why mine rub and you boys don't?!

Good call on the profile,and the only thing that would make sense in terms of tyre rubbing.

I ran 275/30/19 with ET34,and coilovers,no rubbing at all.

Just been out and nope they are 30 profile.

Its lowered on H&R 60/40's and is pretty low and to be fair the set up is not great but regardless it would still rub!

One thing I've just noticed is you guys are all sports and I'm an SE, surely that wouldn't make a difference?!

Nope as your 335 it would of come with m sport springs and the arches are the same. Your problem is h&r springs with 275 im guessing. Im on eibach and i still have lots of room. Its the only thing i can put it down as h&r drop it lower.

Im running super sports maybe the falkens have a prouder shoulder aswel.

335's in D&i come with sports suspension,unless you opt out on the SE,so no, that wouldn't make a difference.

Rolling's the only option,sadly.

The new 453's have a prouder shoulder than the 452's for sure.

To be honest H&R are not a good option by themselves. Although they can't be lower than coil overs? Although I guess you get less travel?

That's the beauty of coilovers Greg,flexibility in the settings,both in height and damper,from a soft ride to a hard ride with a compromise inbetween.

Coilovers can be lower than H&R's but they can also be equally higher.

I had H&R's on my last car,looked the bollocks,but were a total nightmare in terms of ride comfort,and how low the car sat,which brought all manor of problems.

Good luck with the arch rolling,it will sort the problem out

Thanks! I thought I could live with the compromised ride for the look H&R bring but I'm really starting to change my mind!

Time to start saving towards coil overs I think....
