265/35/19 285/35/19 on 19x9 and 19x10.5 - Any problems?

My wheels are:

19x9 offset 22
19x10.5 offset 25

I'm considering Michelin PS2 in 265/35/19 and 285/35/19. My car is a 2011.5 E92 M3 with comp pkg. No aftermarket suspension/lowering.

Will I have any rubbing issues? I don't mind going down to 255/275 but I wanted a meatier look vs. my current 245/265 stretched look. I'm trying to fill that unsightly fender gap up front.

Thanks in advance,

Al

Put some eibach's on and run stock sizes. That'll fill your gaps and maintain an excellent ride. 35's are too tall in those width's.

You need to go with a 30 series not a 35 and run a 295 in the rear..........Phil

I read the "Rub / No Rub Index" sticky thread and decided I should probably go with 255/35/19 and 295/30/19 or 275/35/19 for the rears.

Can someone with similar wheel specs and 295/30/19 on stock suspension chime in regarding rubbing issues?

Thanks.

The front will probably rub a ton..although Maleks car didn't. Most I have seen that have done this do...also a 285/35/19 is almost 27" tall making it .7" taller than OEM. Its going to look like a SUV tire back there.

As far as a 295/30/19 depending on the offset of the rear wheels you should be fine, on some sedans I have seen rubbing, coupes no.

+1...255/35 should rub on the F liner (surprised Malek didn't rub!). 285/35 is way too tall for the R. A 295/30 will fit on the R of an e90 or e92/93 M3 if the offset is not too aggressive - although I'm running 18's, I have zero rubbing with a 295 on a 10"-wide rear wheel with a 22 mm offset.

I ran a 265-30 and a 295-30 on ZCP wheels and stock ZCP suspension. No rub what so ever. I have recently changed wheels but the tires are the same......Phil

I think you mean 265/35...my 255/35/19s don't rub on the front..although it is razor close.
