Pre-Lci E90 Sedan Tires

I've been doing some searching and there's no definitive answer of sizes going past 245/35/19 in the front and 275/30/19 in the rear...I am willing to roll my fenders and play around with camber (-2.2!). Currently, the car sits at 245s in the fronts and 275s in the rears (no rubbing even in big dips). I have rubbed occasionally with 5mm spacers and a full trunk. The reason is because I have weak/OEM offsets (35mm F, 38mm R).

My thought was running 255 or 265s in the Front and 295/30/19 in the rear. Yes, LSD is in the near future...but I want a set of sticky yokohama advan neova ad08s (which I've been told run a size bigger )))

Any pre-lci sedan owners wanna chime in and their big tire setups?

Hi,

I run 275/30 in the rear of my car with +35 offset.
The 295 is a 1cm wider on both sides. I don't think it will fit without a fender pull.
I don't think rolling the fender will be enough. It's also going to be taller.

I'd love to see it if you can make it work.

I think 285's are as wide as you can go without rolling.

we'll find out come spring lol. I plan on running 255/35 fronts, 285/30 rears.

ET +18 up front (I am VERY likely going to have to roll the fenders, and +34 on the rear.

You know you can't roll the front fenders, right? They're plastic...

Or so I was told...

anything over 245 in front will need fender pull and camber.

295 with fender pull is possible. might rub a lil over bumps with passengers in the rear seat.
drawback: if ever you wish to change wheel setup to square after getting LSD, fenders cant be un-rolled.
for 2years i drove my car with staggered 245/275 with fender pulled. now i run 245squared and e joy driving the car much more. better faster crisper turn in and being able to.rotate.tires.is a big plus.have to run 25mm spacers to cover the hidious arch gap in the rear tho

Haha even with a LSD, I will most likely remain with 255/295. With Yokohamas running a size wide, it may be a true 265/305 LOL.

If not, then I guess I'll run 245 (a true 255) in the front. 245 DWS doesn't rub at all.

Well 295s fit, rubs a bit but only over big bumps.

255s fit perfect, no rolling necessary.

EDIT- Now I wonder if I can get away with +20/+22 offset F/R with these sizes lol....gonna buy some spacers and experiment.

They are metal, but are plastic on front clip which is where I shaved some material.

This is correct! I am running a 275 right now on a 10 inch wheel and the tire looks a bit stretched. I can most definitely get a 285 in there, but then there *might* be a slight rub in the fender liner.

I have the OEM sport suspension.

Damn must be nice only worrying about tire size. Haha

I finally was able to get my 18 x 12" with a 285/30 to fit without rubbing. Rear fender lip has been cut clear off, then sanded after. Really the only way to go, way more room compared to just a roll

when you shave/cut your fender how far did you cut, did any paint chip? Can you post pics...I want to do this to fit a 305. As of now I am rolled I then grinded on the
roll and it thinned out the metal and I was able to bend it in more but I want the lip gone....doesn't seem to hard to do and will allow for more clearance.
