Tire size recommendation on Vossen CV3

There is probably post regarding this but I'm on my cell and unable to use the search feature here. Anyway I plan on picking up Vossen CV3. 20"x9 & 20"x10.5 My question is what is the widest tire size I can fit front and rear on Eibach springs without huge rubbing issues. Don't mind a minimal rub but no rub would be nice. Thanks for any help.

Hard to say without knowing the offsets of your wheels.

Exactly! (I have the eibach's too)

With the 305's you may have to consider exact make of tire as sidewalls differ but for example, hankooks would fit.

Thank You. Order was placed last week with one of your vendors. I opted for 295 rears only because roads suck here in NY and my car is dropped. Vendor suggested against the 305's.

I have cv3. With 295s with no issues. But I have experienced another problem. The wheels I was sold in the summer were of et35 offset for the fronts not of what manufacturer recommends. The wheels were ordered from a local wheel shop and installed by them. I was not aware of this until recetly when compared to another m3 with cv3s. I exchanged several emails with vossen without any resolution. I was asked where and when the wheels were bought and that it. No assistance on any side. Quite disappointing.

Hmmm have you contacted the shop that installed them? I'd say that's on them for installing improper offsets on your car.

Also all I can say is if you paid with credit card dispute a portion of the charge. Tell the cc company that the shop sold you the wrong size wheels and it is unsafe to drive the car.

I'm leaning that this is the distributors mistake and not Vossen's. Id be all over the guys that sold em to you. Yes it would be nice of Vossen to step in and come with some sort of solution being that your car is riding on their product but technically nothing is wrong with the wheels. Meaning not defective or anything like that. If I were Vossen however I might look into this distributor of their product and possibly not allow them to sell their product any longer. But if I were you dude I'd be on the doorstep of the place you got em from.
