Exclamation BMW E90 XI FitMENT / CAMBER / TOE HELP!

Hey guys,
I will be getting new tires.
Because my older ones got ruined...
because of a bad alignment job.
i need help with proper camber and toe specs if anyone has them.

I am thinking of getting:
235/35/19 for the fronts
275/30/19 for the rears

They will be placed on bmw rims 269
Fronts: 8.5 rears 9.0

on a bmw 335i XI 2010


The fronts will be firestone Indy 500 / may upgrade to 4s
And the rear will be michelin pilot sport 4S

( Will look into A3S if available in my current size )

Any other sizes are welcomed, let me know

Many shops don't have the correct adjustement for the proper camber and toe measurements.

I want the tires to last.
I won't be taking the car to the track or anything like that.

The max would be a WOT on a straight line

And from my understanding the e90 tends to kill the inner threads of tires.
Proof ( my PSS only lasted me a month )
And i barely drove on them...


Any help will be appreciated.

I can post pictures of my current alignment.

thank you

While I cant help you with actual alignment specs, I wouldnt say e90s are bad on tires, Ive been consistently running 3 years per set of tires (6 month a year) and I usually use tires on the softer side( Kumho Ps91 right now)

Yeah no worries.
I am told the reason that I lost the tires in the rears is because I put 2 different type of tires last time.

Front were firestone / rears michelin PSS.

Will go for all around 4S hopefully shouldn't be an issue.

BTW WHAT BUMPER IS THAT? FRONT BUMPER?
Never saw one.

Is it the performance bumper?
Thanks

If you have an XI you need similar rolling diameter front and back. Having two different brands front and back would not cause the backs to wear faster. A bad alignment will kill tires. Look up proper tire sizes for a XI before buying anything.
