I feel the 10" wide fronts will more than support a 275 up front keeping turn in nice and crisp while the 295s out back will keep the front rear diamater balance in check. What do you think?

Hi Dave,

I do not recommend a 295 tire on a 10" wheel, it is too wide for it. I will be running this setup myself in the next couple months, however I will be modifying my rear wheels and widening them to 11". This way the 275-30 and 295-30 tires look the exact same on the wheels. If I do not do it, I will be doing 275-30 all around and lowering the car a little bit more.

From a cosmetic point I would not do the 275-30 front and 295-30 rear on the 10" wheels because one tire will look semi stretched while the other will look very bulged.

-1.6* Rear wheel camber.
1/16" Toe IN on rear wheels. Total Toe IN is 1/8".

Front Wheels are stock camber, the pins are still intact.

Front Toe is set to 1/16" Toe OUT per wheel .

Car will be going to a customer coilover setup soon and these numbers will change.

Hey Malek, that was my next choice. I used weldcraft for widening a set of wheels for a Mustang Cobra I had. Anyone local you know?

Actually, most 295's will fit on a 10" wheel, however this is the minimum recommended width for a 295. My Porsche Cayenne comes with 295/35/21 on 21x10" wheels and they fit really well. No bowing/bulging of the tire whatsoever....they sit very square. Tires are Michelin Latitude Sport which are an SUV load rated version of the PS2.

OP - What is the final verdict on this setup after a few months of use.

Still no rubbing on 265/35 PS2's up front?

Did you ever end up experimenting with any other sizes or combinations?

TIA!

The car has never rubbed even after multiple track sessions.

The tires are coming to an end soon, and will be switched out for wider rubber up front.

Car will be going to 275-30-19 all around.

I am already using the same tire specs Nitto NT05 275/30/19 on a set of 19X10.5 +25 on the front and +10 on the rear wheels no rubbing and I think you can use a 285/30/19.

Two different applications. More sidewall and the Cayenne needs this sidewall forgiveness as its an SUV. My 997S had a 295/30/19 as OEM and it came with a 11" wide rim.

Hello, congratulations on your M3 and 'beautiful.
I bought the 359m and are about to ask you if you mount with 10mm spacers and springs HeR I have problems rubbing??

Since your settings I should not have any problem with tires 245/35/19 and 265/35/19.

Sorry for my English but I'm Italian.

SO on a stock 2011 M3 EDC suspension I can get away running Maleks 19x10 et25 square setup? I want to do the 265-35-275-35 setup can anyone verify If I can run this/his setup on stock suspension?? I am puzzled because even malek is lowered and cleared so I assume its not going to rub since Im stock height as well...?
