[HELP] 20" BBS LM DBK Tires Question

Ok, so i am planning to buy a set of BBS LM DBK in 20" to be fitted on 08 e92 m3, and the car is lowered on kw springs can you guys advise the tire size ? the road condition here is quite bumpy so i want to make sure that the tires wont rub against my car.

Here is the specs of the wheels:

20"x 9" et 15
20 x 10" et 20

I am thinking of falken fk452 255/30/20 for the front, and 275/30/20 for the back, will it rub ?

yes, that size will be fine.
im running 245/30/20 on my LMs in the front and Im not rubbing, and Im much lower than KWs will go
Im not rubbing on my LM-Rs with more aggressive offset as well.

I'm running the Amuse offset. I have 245/30/20 up front and 295/25/20 in the back. I'm running P-Zeros. I rub on hard turns but that's about it. My front tires are stretched and my rears are square.

Thanks guys, apparently my local dealer only has Yokohama advan sport v103 tires. I am thinking of running 255/30 front and 285/30 back just to protect the lip and fill the gap more. then again i know yoko is pretty square, what do you guys think ?

I've heard people running 255/30 on amuse offset get rubbing at full turn, Is it safe to run 255/30 on 20x9 et 15 (that is 7mm difference to amuse offset et 8).

Just want to update you guys for some quite useful information.

I can confirm that these specs on 245/30/20 yoko advan sport will still rub at full turn. I am going for 245/30/20 toyo t1r and 275/30/20 toyo t1r as well(might stretched a little) which will be fitted next week on tuesday
