285/30/19 on ZCP 10" ET 25 for front

would it work..I know there should be no issues with a 275/30/19 but how about a 285/30/19?

I have 275 on the rear ZCP wheel with space to clear and I'm lowered and running spacers. I think 285 would be fine.

EDIT: oh I just noticed you want to run these up front! Different story, I don't know but it would be a tight fit.

LOL, I am running 285s out back right now, I know Malek is running a 275/30/19 front on a rear ZCP 10" ET25. Just wondering if that extra 10mm would send me off the cliff.

That little bit of extra height might do you in, but you never know for sure until you try.

Tire height comparison, all measurements are nominal, will vary slightly with tire model:

275/30R19: 25.5" overall diameter

285/30R19: 25.7" overall diameter

This thread has perfect timing.....I'm thinking of running 275-30-19 front and 295-30-19 rear and stock 359's. I'm riding on stock ZCP suspension and I know the tire will a have little stretch so that may help eliminate any liner rub. So wizards, is this do-able without spacers?........Phil

This has been done already, seems on the sedan maybe some slight rubbing while the fronts no issues. The rear on the E92 seems to be OK..

Are you using an aftermarket or stock suspension? Have you checked to see how much clearance you currently have between the wheel/tire and front strut? There are several aftermarket front struts that reduce this clearance and, therefore, limits wheel width/offset and tire widths that can be used.

Check out this thread I started trying to get some feedback on that setup on an E92: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=597947

That was focused on still using the stock 9" ZCP front wheel though, not a rear 10" up front as described in the OP's thread.
