What Tire Size?

Hello guys, iím new to this forum and Iíd like to welcome myself as I just purchased a 2008 Bmw 335xi stock everything. I just purchased some 19Ē wheels, 19x8.5 and 19x9.5. I am wondering whatís the best tire size outcome so thereís no rubbing at all. I have been doing my research and saw lots of 235/35 & 265/30. But iíd really like to go with 275 if thatís possible. Also iím on an income so whatís the best cheap tires out there. Thanks!

Tires really arnt something you want to go "cheap on"

Theyre the last thing that connect your 3,500 LB plus car to the road, yes that tiny little rubber patch is doing all the work.
235 35 19
265 30 19
Im running this on the e92 which has less clearence than your car, with spacers and dont have issues, so should fit fine.
Maybe consider that when shopping for tires.

PS: michelin pilot sport 4s is a great summer tire
Bridgestone Potenza S-04's are a good cheap summer tire

I wouldnt put all seasons on it.

it depends on the tire manufacturer as well...275 between tire manufacturers are not necessary the same size. Some of them like to cheat slightly and make it a little wider.

I went with 245 square setup and no issues. 275 shouldn't be a problem, but i would get wider front tires as well since your awd.

there various tire threads in the awd sub forum.
