The definitive 275 tire thread (pre LCI)

Hey Guys,

There is much information about a 275 rear tire fitting an e92. Well!!!! The verdict is.......................... It fits!!!

Here's my setup.

19x8.5 235/35/19 et35 Tires Achilles ATR Sport (cheap tires GREAT I say again GREAT)
19x9.5 275/30/19 et35 Tires Achilles ATR Sport (cheap tires GREAT I say again GREAT)

Rolling diameter ends up in a .01% difference, this is WELL UNDER the 1% threshold.

http://www.onlinetires.com/search/ve...ds/page_1.html

(online tires was a great deal, a bit slow to ship but overall TAT was 10 Business days)

ZERO RUB

KW V1's settings:

Fronts: all the way down
Rear: 14 threads (could be less but safety issues)

For the rears at 8 threads it was UN-DRIVEABLE.

Pictures will follow.

I've received a few PM's regarding my setup but figured this was good information to share with the team. As we know, LCI has a bigger body so you could run lower settings I suspect without issues. FYI- the KW V1's DO NOT GO LOW ENOUGH. I Would love to get another .5" out of them but it wont happen.

I'm running a 19X9.5 et33 running 275/30 on a e90 xDrive and I rub a little with stock suspension. IMO I say it will rub with that setup.
