e90 LCI w/ 19/9.5 et25 Rears...Need fitment advice

Hey guys i just picked up a set of BBS Rs-Gt. Specs are

19/8.5 et 33 Front
19/9.5 et 25 Rear

I plan on running 245/35/19 Pilot Sports on the Front and 275/30/19 Pilot Sports in the rears. I also have a set of 235/35/19 PS2 i received with the set as well.

I have searched for hours and i have yet to find a solid answer.
-Will i rub that bad or minimally? I need to drive this set up back to Indiana from Pa (450Miles) and then to Chicago where i can get my fenders roll
-Does anybody have a set up close to this that can help me out?
-What Tire combination would be idea for performance wise and help with under steer. I came from a 335xi so i used to run all square.


I need advice cause i keep reading so many different things and first hand advice or people who have run this set up would be most beneficial.

I am out of town and i wont be able to see the wheels/tires on the car until Saturday, a day before i leave....So let me know what tire set up that could help my situation.

Update for any one that cares...

Rubbing in the rears over bumps and dips. Ordered a set of 265/30/19 Bridgestone Potentates, so hopefully it will help

Have you tried rolling and slightly pulling your fenders?

You might have helped your cause in the rear if you had chosen 265/30/19's, but I don't blame you for going with the wider tires. I hope you succeed in getting this setup to work to your satisfaction!

Mine are 10 wide with a 275/30 tire on an lci and 30mm offset. It will rub with someone riding in the back when over dips. Car is on original sport suspension. I think you will be better off with the 265 tire.

I just mounted the 265's. Still rubbing over dips however NOT as bad as the 275 tires.


I will have my fenders rolled eventually so that will def help.
