275/30/19 rubbing :( help please

Hi everyone,

I currently have BBS CH rims on my E46 M3 LSB. 19x9.5 (F) and 19x10 (R)
I have Blistein PSS10 Coil-overs set to give me a 0.5 to 1 inch gap between the tire and wheel well. i'm rubbing in the back and the front. the back just slightly and the front only when i turn more than half way. when i look at the rear tires, i dont see where it is rubbing so i assume it is at the back where i can't see. i currently have 275/30/19 in the rears which i hear is supposed to be ok for no rub. In the front i have 245/40/19.

i'm looking to change my set up to 245/35/19 front and 265/30/19 rear
i don't want to increase the ride height.

do you think this will solve my rubbing issue?
what kind of set ups to you guys have and how is it working for you?

Thanks!

Rubbing in the rear... weird with that size.

What's your offset? How much camber/toe in the rear? Did you shave/cut the fenders?

+1 - what's the rear wheel offset?

I don't think the tire width is the problem because I used 275/30-19 street tire (with large rim bead protector) and 275/35-18 R-comps (as well as other sizes) on my old e46 M3.

If your rear offset is too aggressive then the 265 may not solve your rubbing problem completely without rolling the fender.

Not sure rolling the fender with a 19x10et20 wheel and a 265/30 tire will solve your rubbing problem. I used a 19x9.5et21 rear wheel and had a rubbing problem, even with -2.3 deg of camber.
