Exclamation Widest tire size on 19x8.5 et 30, 19x9.5 et 35?

Just recently purchased my 2007 E92 335i and I was wondering if anyone can tell me what tire size I can go for this setup.

19x8.5 et 30 front
19x9.5 et 35 rear

without getting my fenders rolled, can I fit:
235/35/19 or 245 possibly?
275/30/19 or 285 possibly?

Lowering my car this week on H&R sport springs. Stock shocks. I believe all E92s have the sport suspension? Still confused because some websites I've seen has a base e92 and a sport e92. Can anyone tell me the difference?

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!


Update: wondering what size spacers can I put, or what would fit without any rubbing?

All e92s don't have the same suspension, that's why there is a sport model and a basis model.. Also you have your measurements wrong 235/35/19 for front
265/275 either one 30/19 there is a .4 difference between 265, and 275. 276 will bother your speedometer though 265 won't

235/35/19 or 245 - Physically, yes. possibly?
275/30/19 or 285 - No. possibly?

http://www.kouki.co.uk/utilities/vis...ize-calculator
(scroll down the page to the fitment table)

Physical tire sizes for 8.5" wheel:
225 -> 255


Physical tire sizes for 9.5" wheel:
245 -> 275


That will tell you what will physically fit - rolling and rubbing, that's for someone else to answer!

Thank you Hoody335 and BmerMeUp.

So could anyone tell me what's the widest I can go on both front and rear, without having to roll fenders? Am I stuck with 235/35/19 and 265/30/19? Can I go thicker and wider, below 1%, and still fit without fender rolling?

You can go 245/35/19 up front and 275/30/19 rear with slight roll.
