08 MR E92 M3

255/30/20 f - 305/25/20 b. 9.5/11.5 Klassen wheels. No rub at all even with 4 people and 150lbs of luggage in car.

Can anyone help me out if I can put 325/30/20 in the back. I am not lowered. 305 is not enough tire for 11.5 or is there a fatter tire that comes in 305 than hankooks except ps2's? I wanted to put 265/30/20 and 325/30/20 dunlop sport max gt's. Front should be ok but I m worried about back. Help me out pls?

Maybe I'm missing something, why do you want such huge wheels? What is the point, your killing the car both performance wise and handling. Are you compensating for something?

Lol. No man. I have my oem set for track. The overall weight for these is only 20 pounds more than oem. Tire weight would be another 10 pounds. So 30 pounds on 4500 pound car doesn't make a difference in everyday driving. I mean its not like you drive the car aggressive all day long. So u don need super performance during dd. The sole reason is to protect my rims cuz I got a curb rash on one already! Damm! I just wanna put 30 series so its a bit for comfy for dd. And 19" on this car are small unless u drop it which I do not want to do. And I think you r missing out but most m3's have 20's

I believe you're wrong in terms of unsprung weight. 30lbs may not sound like alot but in terms of unsprung weight, it can equal up to 300lbs (give or take). You have to take into consideration the rotation of the mass which can add weight.
Adding 30lbs to your unsprung weight can place more stress on your handling, braking, and acceleration. With an extra 30lbs you probably lost 0.5 - 1 second of acceleration (1 second is drastic). I know it doesn't seem like much but just throwing it out there.

Car: 09 E90

Wheels: OEM 220M

Spacers: TMS 15mm (F) / 12.5mm (R)

Tires / Miles: OE Continental Contisport Contact 3 - (F) 245/35/19, (R) 265/35/19

Suspension: KW V3 lowered about 1.2" all around

EDC Setting: N/A

Alignment: Just lowered on KW V3's, going to the alignment shop today

Fender Modifications: trimmed rear fender liner on both sides due to rubbing. Also trimmed the plastic tab behind the passenger side fender liner.

Rubbing?: Front passenger side tire touches the fender liner slightly when front wheels are turned almost all the way to the right. Not a big deal since I hardly make U-turns going clockwise.

hi, im looking to rub 295 on my car is well with a wheel that has the same offset as yours in the rear, what do you mean by the plastic nub? does it actually hit the part of the fender that is painted? does it cause any visual damage or anything like that and has it gone away? sorry for all the questions but im new to this and thought you might know the answers considering your situation thanks alot

I have 220M (stock suspension, w/ EDC, no spacers) and just about to get a new tire set. I was thinking going with PSS but also wanted to go bit bigger in tire size if possible.

what would work on these? highest tire size for front and rear that will give me no rub at all.

Thanks all for your input.

I have HRE p43sc on order and I'm debating what size tires to go with I'm putting them on an e90.. (F) 19x9.0 ET 22 (R) 19x10.5 ET 27. I was thinking of putting on PSS and sizes F 255/35 R 285/35.. Do you guys think I'd rub? My suspension is currently stock.. I wanna try and stick with a 35 profile I don't like thin profiles. Any thoughts?

You will be fine in the rear but afaik they do not make PSS in 285/35/19 yet (last time i checked was a couple months ago). You should be able to get away with 295/35/19 at ET 28 or so. I am running a 275 PSS on 10.5" HRE ET 22 and have no rubbing at all.

However I would go 9.5 front and 10.5 rear to maintain the OEM 1" stagger and size your tires accordingly to maintain the OEM 20mm stagger. If you decide to go with a 295 rear I would recommend running an 11" wheel as the 295 looks very square on a 10.5" wheel and you need to sacrifice some offset due to this.

Thanks for the reply I've been waiting for an answer!
I was afraid of doing a 9.5 in the front i thought id def rub. Well I ordered the rims already so it's too late :/ what are the down sides of being more than 1 in? It was actually recommended.. I just checked your right they don't make it in a 285. So should I go 275 or 295? Wouldn't a 295 rub thought?

Right now my setup is 19x9" ET 22 front with 255/35/19 PSS and 19x10.5" ET 22 rear with 275/35/19 PSS. Ideally I think I would want a 9.5" front while maintaining the ET 22 offset to have equal stretch and "poke" between the front/rear tires (front is slightly more square and further inward from the fender when compared with the rear).

I tried running 295/35/19 PSS but at ET 22 there was rubbing. I believe ET 27-28 will work with the 295 wide rear, however I would search the forums to double check.

Oh you have the 1 1/2 difference also what's the bad part ?.. Well I think I'm gonna go with a 275/35 ? I'm afraid 295 will rub..

Another input for the "database"
What won't rub - even on the track

265/35-18 Michelin Pilot Cup tires on all 4 corners
FRONT: 9,5x18 ET23 w 10mm spacer which results in an ET13
REAR: 9,5x18 ET23 w 15mm spacer which results in an ET8

here's a picture of how it looks

R - Rubs on hard dips on the part where the bumper attaches to the car( same place as everyone else) Can't really hear it no more but it still rubs there. Nothing detrimental to the car.


How is that these guys have the same wheel size in the from with similar off sets one rubs the other doesn't?? Bc I have an e90 and I'm trying to do a 255/35 in the front with a ET 22 and people are saying I will rub?? Any thoughts?
