Question BBS Fi problem

Hello, I bought BBS Fi wheels for my BMW ///M3 E92. Rear wheels touching rear wings on the pits in the road! Front wheels ET 28, rear wheels ET 23! These departures are suitable for the Brembo brakes? I have Brembo BBK 380/380. Tires installed: Michelin PS2 front 255/35 R19 and 295/30 R 19 rear. What do I do with this problem???
Why the wheel touching the rear wing?

Alex - what size wheels you running? I assume 19" but what about the width. How about suspension?

I had HRE's on my old E90 M3 with the same size tires you are running (Michelin PS2). My rears were 10.5" wide with +28 offset. My motons were set a little too low at first and when I had 3 sets of golf clubs in the trunk and a passenger in the rear I would sometime get tire rubbing on the fender liner on the rear when I went over a big bump.

what brand of tire? some are more square than others. Get an alignment and dial in a bit more negative camber.

Not sure what you mean by "rear wheel hitting wing"?

Alex is Russian and English is not his first language. I think he means hitting the fender.

Alex - I am surprised you have rubbing based on your set up. I agree with chris s, maybe have an alignment done and try to get some more negative camber in the rear. as long as the inner barrel of the wheel is not hitting your caliper (and it shouldnt be with those wheels), your brakes will not be an issue.

Ok got it, thanks that makes more sense.
The FI's have a very aggressive offset on the rear, as these guys mentioned you need an alignment and additional negative camber on the rear to avoid rubbing with the 295 PS2's.
The wheels should be fine with the 380 brembos, is he saying the brakes are rubbing?

well a 285 will certainly solve his issue...but instead of buying new tires, some more neg camber will fix the issue most likely.

My buddy runs a 295/30/19 PSS with the same rim and doesn't rub.

Ah weird, most people have the rear bumper rubbing. Did you get an alignment? Maybe you can camber in the rim a bit to clear.

Hmm that's weird. I'm running a slightly lower offset and wider tire and I have no issues. Perhaps it's the design of the bbs rim itself? Sorry for not being much help. Dunno what else you can do but to change the tires?
