Update: I am actually still on the fence. I spoke with VMR and they assured me that 19x11 ET25 with 295/30 is what they tested on they. In fact, they tested with KW coilovers. This means that I can install my rear Eibachs...

The issue that we (install and I) saw is that the 275/35 aspect ratio is .6 inch taller then a 295/30 tire. I busted out the tire calculator. Right now the tops of the tire is inside the fendor and stretches out as it nears the rim. Coincidental, if I use a 285/30 tire we will be looking at over a .8 inch reduction.

Love the calculator: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=127460

Gonna pick a few brains in this thread,

How much wider are we talking (Fender room in regards to e46M to e92M) My old set up was decently aggressive on my e46 and i'm looking at doing near the same on my e92....now from what i'm seeing on this thread, I was more aggressive on those fenders than alot of the people with e92, I do see that a vast majority of people in the forum are running 9" up front with less people running 10's. And rears for the most part are 10-11 with offsets around +10/+20

18x10+15f
18x11.5+4r




Now, I understand the whole "This car was meant to handle/track/be a racekor/etc," but I am fully aware of what I am doing is killing the 'handling' of the car but let's be real, I live in Florida, my entire state is one miserable straight line.

any insights are appreciated.

I run a 9.5" front with a 27 offset. I could easily run a 265 tire with a 10mm spacer with room to spare

19x10 ET20 fronts are perfectly flush with either 265/30 or 275/30 [Tire brands with rounder sidewalls] (Lowered / No crazy camber or anything)... So I would guess your ET15 fronts would be good to go if you do some tire stretching + camber..

The rears will definitely need MAJOR surgery to make it happen... those offsets are way out in left field for the E9x M chasis Powerbeast has some LMs with new barrels in the works.. His rears are x11.5 ET21 which are already uber aggressive.. +4 on the other hand...

I definitely plan on some moderate stretch and perhaps 2~3 degrees of camber all around, but I don't think the 11.5 +4 would be a big issue, especially since i'm pretty certain these fenders are just as big, if not bigger, than the e46M ones, but i'm iffy on pulling the trigger on such an aggressive set up, being my first one on the car

You wont have a problem with the rears either.
Do you have rubbing issues with the inner lining of the fender?

Ok going thru this thread and like the look of 99.9% of the cars posted here. This is what I'm going with right now and would like to know what size spacers I can go with to get as flush as possible to the fenders.

VMR 710 Size:19x9.5 ET:22mm Front Size:19x10 ET:25mm Rear. Transfering the OEM tires to the VMR and making my OEM wheels my winter set up since I'm stationed in Germany. Any input is greatly appreciated.

In about a week I'll be running a 285/30-18, 18x10.5 square setup.

I was curious if anyone tried a 18x11 or 18x11.5 square race setup with 305+ tires?
