Will It Fit... E92

Hey everyone,
I try to research as much as possible before posting but after searching I just gave up.

Proposed Setup:
Front: 19x8.5 +33 Offset -- 235/35/19 (Michelin PSS)
Rear: 19x9.5 +33 Offset -- 275/30/19 (Michelin PSS)

I know the Michelins are a pretty fat tire. I am lowered (to stock sport height) on KWv1 right now. I am wondering if I can run this setup with no fender roll in the rear.

I am an xi so I wanted to keep the diameters as close as possible, hence my bias towards the 275.

Any help is welcome. Thanks everyone.

265/30/19 Would be better... but Im not sure what works best for XI models

We generally don't recommend that rear tire size, but there are a bunch of people on here that haven't experienced much rubbing to my knowledge. We recommend 265/30/19 tires.

Thank you. It seems like this is the general consensus that I am getting from reading around on the forums since I don't think I want to roll the fenders.

Here's a picture of my current setup. I'm thinking I may have to raise the car up a bit once I put the new wheels on to avoid any rubbing under load/cornering. The PSS seem like a beefy tire.

Note: I've got 12mm spacers on the rear right now. These will definitely have to come off before installing the new wheels.

i just got 275/30/19 pss for my e92, my wheels are 19x9.5 et35 lowered on kw v2. it clears but just. only did a test fit so far. will put up a pic here later that i took of the test fit. an option for you might be to get the hub of the wheel shaved to increase offset# i measured atleast 20mm clearance on the strut side for me.

one of my rear wheels went in for a small weld so i will ptu them on later this week and take the car around for a spin to see any rubbing. im running 245/35/19 up front though, and that rubs only on full turn

this is how much clearance i have towards the fender with the 275 PSS. i feel there might be very slight rub on dips and speed bumps. the car is lowered just so that the top of the tire is in line with the bottom of the fender arch.
