Need Help with Tire Sizes Please!

Hey all!

Sorry if I sound like a newb but I have an 07' e92 that I want to lower with rims. I plan on using the H&R Race Drop along with 19 x 8.5 Front & 19 x 9.5 Rear. As Far as the offset I plan on going +35 in the front and +30 in the rear. What size tires should I go with to make sure there is no rub? I love the look of the rims being spaced out with no gap but don't really want to roll fenders (Im not even 100% everything involved to do so).. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

Go with a 235/35/19 front and 265/30/19 rear

What wheels are you thinking about getting?

Thanks guys. Do you know if this wheel size will achieve the look Im talking about with the offset and drop? Looking to get a VMR V710 in matte black or pending budget a knock off look a like...

Also, the difference between 255 and 265 in the back wouldn't cause any rubbing? you think at a least?

225/35/19 Front; 265/30/19 Rear would be better and is perfect for you without the rub... and the wheel diameter difference front to back is under 1 percent, ensuring that there will be no speedo error issues.

The other alternative would be 235/35 Front; 275/30 Rear. Perfect wheel diameter front to back with very minimum difference (less than half a percent).

It will give you a nice flush look without rubbing issues.

Just be careful with those knock off wheels. They have a bad rep for breaking easily. VMRs are a great choice though

Stick to the 265 rear. The 235 front and 265 rear is the most common fitment for those wheel sizes.

Ok so I decided on a wheel and suspension setup after many hours if reading. I've decided on Koni yellows and hr sport springs. Wanted to go race but everyone says it's terrible even with konis. The rim is going to be the ground force gf06 in black on my grey 335i. I think I'm going to do +30 front and rear. Any thoughts with the different offset and suspension? With the drop should I still stick to the 235/35 and 265/30? Or def rub? I'm ok with rear flaring as I didn't know I could get it really cheap. For some reason I thought it was expensive to get done. Any input is appreciated!!! Any pics of someone running this setup or at least similar suspension and offset would be great too. Thanks!

235/35/19 and 265/30/19 tires should work well.

those offsets aren't really going to cause any trouble for your fenders..would probably be able to play with spacers a bit. Not vmrs but here's a similar setup I had with 235/35 and 265/30
