lci fitment question

so im about to put 19x8.5 et 30 235/35/19 and 19x10 et 37 265/30/19 falken fk452s on my e90 335i lci dropped on eibach pro kits.

will i have rubbing issues and all that? with 400 pounds of passengers in the back? i do not have a fender roll. could i possibly somehow put a 275 on the rear? maybe even a 245 in the front. would hankook v12s fit on my current set up in the same sizes? what about nitto invos. i know they have a more square sidewall compared to the falkens and t1rs. and i believe my camber is at -1.7 -1.8 ish or something like that.

im a nub with this offset tire wheel fitment stuff.

I suspect you will rub up front. rear will be tight running a 10" rim on a 265 tire, 275 I would say no way.

You will need a fender roll with a 275/30 if you have people in the car a lot. The front will be fine with a 245/35. a 265/30/19 would be a safe option, but both are do-able.

To stay with the safer option, I would recommend a 235/265.

8.5 +30 with a 245 is quite aggressive up front and lowering may cause some rubbing.

10 +37 with a 265 FK452 should be fine but this will also depend on your alignment and specific height.

Hankook V12 may cause rubbing issues if lowered with a full cabin. Nothing a very slight fender roll cant fix though.

How about this same setup/offsets without lowering springs? I'm looking to go 245/275. Anyone know of rubbing issues on an 09 lci? Not trying to thread jack, but had similar question at stock heights.

on stock height i think you should be fine. with a full load maybe... rubbing in the back but nothing a fender roll wont fix.

Ill have to agree with this. Under compression or cornering, rubbing may occur but this all depends on tire manufacturer and alignement characteristics as well.

How about Continental DW's as far as 245/275 on stock springs? Does anyone know if they run wider or what?
