fitment gurus... will this fit?

Hey guys, i have a question with the offset and tires specs. Will this fit my 335i e92 with sport suspension WITHOUT a drop or fender roll. Will the tire spec make the tire rub on bumps or with passenger? Thanks

Tires: 245/40/19
Wheels: 19x10 +25

Also with the same spec wheels, whats the max i can use so it doesnt rub? Thanks.

Thanks

Absolutely, without a drop or fender roll, you could probably get away with even more meat on the tire aswell.

a 265/30/19 on 19x10 et 25 will fit on a STOCK suspension.

Sounds good, exactly the answer I was looking for. Thanks for your time e90fun, I might be switching out the fronts too, but let me see first maybe the stock ones on them now will look good

Tire profile too high.

Better to go with a 245.35.19 if you decide to go with 245

I'm assuming those specs are for the rear only. I'd say you'd probably be good with a 255/30/19 and some camber.

I know you can fit 255/35/18 on the stock sport suspension on the front. Similarly, you can probably fit 255/30/19 on the front with an 8.5" wheel at +35mm offset.

Im running 19x9 +25 215/35/19 on the fronts.. im not changing the fronts anytime soon. THanks though .

So altogether i can run a 255 or 265 in the rears with /35/19? with out roll, camber adjustment, or a drop which tire width can i use that wont rub at all?

I am running a 19x10 et 27 with a 265/30/19 in the rear. I am on st coilovers and rubbing slightly on the sidewall of the tire. I was wondering if i only adjust the camber will that prevent my rubbing?

yes this should work with no prob....10(+25) will sit flush with the fenders in the rear. I would run 255 to be on the safe side.

yes add (or take away depending how you look at it) -1.25 degrees on top of what you already have and you'll be good... You can do -3 degrees stock...and still keep everything in bmw specs.

so just by adjusting the camber should cut out my rubbing and i won't need to roll my fender? How much you think I should tell them to camber then?

It will also help to go with a 30 profile. so a 255/30/19 (?) and a 265/30/19.

IMO, without a drop, its easily doable with a 265. If you had a drop, its more a squeeze and some camber would need to be played in but you will be fine running 265/30/19 without a doubt on stock height.

I might dare even say 275/30/19 but I would stick with 265..

Do you have fenders rolled? That would be the BEST and cheapest starting place (imo, everyone should get a fender roll done if they are even thinking about going aftermarket wheels..) and from there either you can raise the car up alittle or you can dial in camber.

no my fenders are not rolled and I do not plan on rolling them if i don't have to. I want to play with camber since i need an alignment anyways since i just lowered my car. I am rubbing slightly on the sidewall of my tire but i just want to avoid it because some driveways i am not even able to go up because it is rubbing. Let me know if just adjusting the camber will fix my rubbing without having to roll my fenders

I have a 2008 E92 335 M-sport with 19x10 HRE P40s wheels in the rear with a 275/30/19 and I had to get my fenders rolled for it to not rub. Now if i have a passenger and a couple girls in the back then it rubs over bumps and dips. If I have only 1 passenger about the same weight as me which is about 175lbs then it doesnt rub unless its a big dip. And even then its a minor rub. Getting your fenders rolled isnt that big of a deal as long as the right person is doing it OP...

On another note I just came across a killer deal on some Michelin Pilot PS2's for the front of my car which i just replaced the rears with the same Michelin Pilot PS2's and LOVE THEM. The car hooks and honestly I dont think there could be a better tire out there for atleast the way I drive my car lol. But I need your guys opinion on these tires I just came across... They are a 245/40/19 and literally have less than 15 miles on them and my buddy at Discount Tire said the guy brought them back because he didnt like the tread pattern on them and the way they smell....hahahaha. So there is literally less than 15 miles on them and I'm getting them for 100 bucks for BOTH. WILL THEY FIT??? Im worried if they are going to fit or not... I have KW coilovers and can adjust them as much as possible to squeeze them in the front fender well.

No, you need 35, not 40, profile in the front.
