What tyre sizes / brand? E92 Coupe.

I bought my car with staggered CSL reps with cheap tyres. Altenzo being the cheap brand.

Front size: 235/35/19
Rear size: 265/30/19

I lowered the car and spaced the wheels as much as I could without rubbing.

I then purchased a pair of Goodyear Eagle F1's in 265/30/19.

These are a lot wider than the Altenzo's. The Altenzos had a slight stretch whereas the Goodyears were wide enough to protect the rim from a kerb. Even with spacers removed the tyres were wide enough to rub on the arches.

What tyres / sizes are people running on lowered E92 coupes with 8.5 & 9.5j rims.

Cheers,
Todd.

what is the offset of the wheels, as that will have a large impact on fitment.

if the offset is correct, you should be able to fit a 265 in the rear easily? offset should be around the ET35 mark.

also is your car Pre-LCI or LCI? LCI cars have a wider track at the rear, and as such need to run a higher offset (up towards 40) for clearance.

I have the offset sitting the way I want it now. Just need a smaller tyre to clear the arches. So looking to see what tyres people are running.

Cheers bud. I would need a smaller tyre than that as my wheels would be spaced out a good few more mm than yours

Running 225M wheels on 225/35/19,255/30/19 Michelin PSS.
Soon to try out spacers at standard ride height.

Are you on lowering springs? Any pics?

Ideally I'd like to spacer the rears more!

Just changed tyres this weekend to this exact setup.. Makes a massive difference from the runflats that were on the car!
