How much camber to run on e92 to fit 10.5 et25?

So I recently bought some new wheels...specs:

19x8.5 et30
19x10.5 et25

The tires I'm running are 235/35 and 265/30....

My fenders are mildly rolled and I just ordered some new coilovers.

Question is, how much camber will I need to make these fit in the rear? I know the fronts will be no problem..I don't want much camber, just enough so that I don't have to experience rubbing.

Keep in mind, this is for an E92 not E90

Thanks!

Depends how low you are, you could probably get away with under -2 if you're not tucking

Nah no tucking for me....I'm thinking about maybe a 0.5" wheel gap after I install the coilovers

I'm going to say this....I had H&R race springs, and after I put them on I had camber of -2.45/-2.33 if i'm not mistaken. I had the dealer put my camber at an even -3, and I was running 10.5(+30) and I was good. So as it was mentioned...it depends on how low you are going to go.

8.5" 235 in the front, 10.5" 265 in the rear?! That's going to be an uneven look...

^Agreed it will look uneven, but those are the tires that came off my previous set of wheels, so I gotta use them upp

So my new question is, how low should I be to make the car look decent and how much camber, with no rubbing, and as much even tire wear as possible?

1. You need to roll the fenders if you havent yet
2. IMO aggressive fitment needs zero wheel gap or slight tire tuck to look good
3. -3 camber should be a good ballpark to aim for but it's hard to throw out a number over the internet. There are a lot of variables.
