The E9x M3 chassis have no extra room for increased rolling diameter in the front of the car. The front wheel well liner is very small relative to the tire that's already there.

As a rule, I never install a tire that has a wider overall rolling diameter than the factory front tire. I would suggest switching to a 245/35/19 tire to help alleviate some rubbing.

Its a combination of the lower car along with the very aggressive offset of the wheels.

I run 255/35/19s front and 285/30/19s rear on my ZCP and I have absolutely no rubbing...although it is so close on the front liner as a 26" tall tire is just a whisker away from rubbing the liner. The fact your car is lowered and with a ET15 wheel vs. the ET31 wheel for the ZCP car I'm sure made the difference.

You don't rub at full lock?

I have Dinan springs (0.5" drop at the most) with EDC and Dinan camber plates, I rub at full lock turning right only.

Exactly. Certain offset combinations (like yours) will clear the liner, but typically increasing the overall diameter of the front tire complicates things.

No rub at all even at full lock....barely though it is close.

I vote lower profile. 265/35/19 AD08 rubbed for me with KW CS, but 265/30/19 fit perfectly. 265/30/19 should work.

19x9.5 +22 on 255/35/19 rub a little on full lock...
I believe +15 is too low for running a 255/35 tires, also mine is 9.5 wide, so my tires are not sitting as high as yours...
I suggest u raise the car a little see if that helps, otherwise try 245/35 or 255/30 maybe?

255/30 would be way to small...what would be better would be a 265/30/19..
