Hey guys, just got my set of M310s for my E92 sport suspension
9.5 in the rear
8.5 in the front

Went to discount tires and they said 235/35 19 in the front and 275/30 19 in the rear should work, but after mounting and driving off I noticed that and hard turns or fast dips in the road would cause a scraping noise so I figured I'm rubbing.

I think **********s recommended I go with 265 in the rear and supposedly I shouldn't rub right? I like the bigger/wider look of the 275s and feel that 10mm would make a noticeable difference (or would it not be that noticeable)

I'm coming in here to ask you guys for opinions on what my options are. Would rolling my fenders be enough for the rear? Or do I need to downsize on tires?

Appreciate the input. Here's some pics.
Uh on the mobile app. Don't see any options on attaching pics

- 19"x9.5" ET33mm Rear 265/30/19

You should be fine with a fender roll. I have my rears rolled with 265/30/19(Falkens) on a 9.5 +22 and I might hear a faint rub on the most extreme dips. I would imagine with an 11mm difference in offset and 10mm more rubber your results would be similar. It also depends on what tire you're running, Falkens run narrow.

what brand/model tires are you also on? 9.5" rear with +33 offset is still conservative. a fender roll will take care of the rubbing unless the 275 tires you're on are "wider than normal" (like michelins), then you can either add a little more negative camber and/or just switch to 265s and call it a day.

Well if you're rubbing with 265s wouldn't that mean that my 10mm difference will rub even more even with a fender roll? Or are you saying there's only a one mm difference between ours because of offset size. I want it to work properly. Hopefully a fender roll is enough? Will it be safe if my car dips at 100+mph? haha.

265 size V12s on a 9.5" with a +33 offset wont rub after you get a fender roll.
