RE-11 in 285/35/19 with Eibach Springs...

Asking the eternal question, will it rub with Eibach springs on a 2011 E90 M3? I know the RE-11 runs large but hoping the mild drop from the Eibachs coupled with the 10.5" rim width will be good news. Any thoughts from the fitment experts? Specs below...

It's very likely you'll rub with 285/35/19. The RE11 has a pretty square profile so unless you've dialed in a fair bit of negative camber, I doubt it will fit.

Why not run a 295/30/19, closer in diamater to OEM than the 285/35/19. Although the 23mm offset could be the deal breaker...

Reason I'm asking about the 285/35 is its an existing wheel/tire package I'm looking at picking up... I suppose worst case scenario if it rubs I could ditch the rears for a pair in 275/30/19 but thats not optimal of course. Anyone else?

275/30/19 would probably worse in the fact that its a fair stretch on 10.5" rims.

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but just wondering if you had any rubbing issues with the 285/35/19's with Eibach springs?

Yep I did actually, I got some minor rubbing over dips/bumps. Ended up swapping the RE-11's for Pilot Super Sports and now all is well.
