Fitment help

Hey guys, So I have an 08 335XI Coupe. I recently purchased some wheels (woohoo!) and needed some help with fitment. Specs are below.

19x8.5 ET32 235/35/19
19x10 ET38 265/30/19

Also ordered some KW V1's to install all at once.


My question is, can I go 275/30/19 in the rear without rubbing? I read a few people running that size and not rubbing, but it was on an E90 and I didnt really see whether or not they're running V1s.

Also, are there any tire suggestions? I havent purchased the tires yet.

EDIT: Reason for the 275/30/19 is cause its closer to 0 difference and that makes me a bit more comfortable than the .87% with the 265's

I believe they would fit fine since the offset on those wheels is not agressive at all, I have similar sizes and my rears are also 10s and running 275's also.......but to confirm do a quick search for agressive fitment or fitment thread, I saw it here somewhere and they discuss questions like the one you posted.

Cool, I saw a few people running the 275 but as stated they were e90s. I didnt know if there was a difference in clearance. Not looking for anything super aggressive, just decently flush. Will add spacers as needed =]

SO I actually have 265/30/19 in the rear and it fits perfectly, but I imagine 275's would fit if on coilovers because the wheel tends to camber in more the lower you go.
is there any camber adjustment in the stock arms?
\might be enough to make the wheel fit without rubbing. as long as the camber is done correctly adding neg camber wont affect ride and tire wear is not even noticeable at those minor specs...
