david/anthony,
I have a 09 e92 with ZCP wheels on non-ZCP suspension (not lowered) and will be soon changing my tires on the wheels to PSS 255/35 and 275/35's...if I am NOT planning to lower the car whatsoever can I get by with 15/12mm kit without rubbing with passengers (i rarely have any usually though)?

I have the same setup, 09 E92 except 285/30 rears, ZCP, not lowered, and I have 12 up front and 5mm in the rear per their recommendation (since I measured 7mm myself in the rear). I think I could have easily gone to 15/12 setup... getting the 5mm was a waste, it is hardly noticeable. Trying to measure yourself is not an exact science as it turns out... I don't think you'll have any problems with 15/12 setup fratello-

p.s. I have before after pics, if EAS doesn't mind me posting?

With the wider tires you might rub with the 15/12 set up if you have passengers, but driving yourself should be fine.

You can surely post the pictures if you have them!

So would a 15/10 work better? The concern with rubbing in my situation would only be the rear right? or both front and rear (in which case 12/10 would work)

The 12/10 would be the safe bet but you might be able to do the 15 front if you're not lowered, though it may on full lock. Best thing to do is to measure the clearance once you get the new tires, since they're not OEM spec anymore.

I had 20mm F and 15mm R on the other day to test it out and they fit fine with zero rubbing, but the back then looked like it needed a 18mm spacer.

Reason I tried it out was I wanted to see where the rear wheels would sit on a square set up. The stock 9" front wheels with a 20mm spacer is only 1mm more agressive then if I had put the rear 10" +25 on the front.

Here you go (sorry I didn't have time that day to roll the car out for 'normal' photos, so I just did the before/after shots in the garage... Not anywhere near the quality of the EAS shots...

I started out with 15/12, now on 15/15, going 18/15 tomorrow and possibly 18/18 next week. This is with H&R springs, GTS wheels with PS2 in stock sizes.

Tom / David--

I'm thinking of running 20" BBS CH-R (9/10.5 Rear, +24 Offset F&R) with Eibach or H&R springs. Tirerack is suggesting 245/30 up front and 305/25 in back, but as my friend tibra points out, that's a big stagger compared to stock, and I'm worried about rubbing.

You have any tire and spacer recommendations based on the above setup?

Thanks!!

Either up the front size or decrease the rear. Not sure why you would do one and not the other.

305 is a very large tire, I doubt any spacer will be needed in the rear. Front can probably use a 10mm, measure beforehand to be absolutely sure.

Aim for a tire with a rounded sidewall (ie: Toyo) or you may need to dial in some camber in order to prevent rubbing under load.

Seen a lot of people run 12/5 on the below set up. What's optimal to preserve handling but improve looks:

Year/model BMW
2011 M3 E92

Wheels/offset
Front: 19x9.0 OEM M3 ZCP, ET31
Rear: 19x10.0 OEM M3 ZCP, ET25

Tire size
Front:Michelin PSS 255/35-19
Rear: Michelin PSS 275/35-19

Suspension
KW V3 (lowered mid-way)

I'd bet you can go at least 12/12 if not more.

anyone with a 15f/10r spacers running PSS 255f/275r ? (comp. wheels)

if so, any rubbing?


I have the 15/10mm spacers with the OEM tires, but ordered the 255 and 275 PSS replacements, and starting to get concerned I may have rubbing!

I have an '11 E93 and running a 18/15 MS setup with OEM wheels/tires. Also, car is lowered on eibach springs. I love the aggressive stance. So far, no rubbing issue. Will post pics later.

Running the 18/15 now. Looks great, no rubbing. Have another set of 18mm coming this week. We'll see if they work on the rear.
