Tire Recommendations

I'm new here and just bought my first BMW. 2007 335i Coupe w/ sports package. The current rims on the car are Beyern Baroque 19" and I believe it's 8.5 front 9.5 rear according to what the previous owner told me.

http://www.beyernwheels.com/BMW_whee...rn_baroque.php

Current tires

front: Pirelli pzero nero 235/35 zr 19 (these are worn and need to be replaced)
rear: Goodyear eagle f1 asymmetric 245/35r19 (he put these on b/c he had flat tires the morning I bought it. Fairly new tires)

I know the rear tires are narrower then recommended so I was wondering if I can move them up front?

I was thinking of putting 265 or 275/35 rear? Can someone help me out? I also need to get tpms sensors installed on all four as well.

I've got a set of nearly new 265/35-19 Continental ExtremeContact DW tires for sale.

PM me if you're interested. I'm sure we can work something out

Can you PM me? For some reason it doesn't give me the option to PM you. Do you think I can make the 245/35 work up front?

Thanks I'll take a look. Any comments on running 245/35 up front? And how wide I can go in the rear?

Depending on your body kit...you may need wheel spacers. I have the m kit bumper and rear with wheel spacers- builds up the space n look including slight control improvements. However if yours is standard I would think twice and ask your local wheel dealer. better to be safe then sry


PS- with your rims. 235/40 front, 265/35 rear would do well. Also, A-Directional front and A symet rear is a good set up....now you just need to get the right tires and size. There's a plathora of great info on this forum about tire types and sizes etc. have a little search.
Best of luck.
