Work Brombachers (19x9.5 & 19x11) - What tire size? Help!

I have a set of Work Brombachers and it's about time to get some tires for them, but I'm not sure what to get. I want to avoid rubbing, so if anyone can offer some advice, it'd be much appreciated!

Wheel size:
Fronts: 19x9.5 +27
Rears: 19x11 +25

Suspension:
Stock setup w/EDC

I've been doing some searching on the forums, but haven't been able to find a concrete answer. The goal here is a good/flush fit w/no rubbing. Some of the suggestions I've heard are (255/35/19 & 285/30/19) or (265/30/19 and 295/30/19) - but not sure if that'd work? Another member ran 245/35/19 and 275/35, which seems a bit stretched, but it's more conservative I guess. I know that some tire brands run wider than others too, which throws in more options to consider... I think I've decided on some Yokohama ADVAN AD08's, but now I just need to find the right size....

Thanks for the help!

AD08s will run wider in opposed to tires with rounder sidewalls such as V12s.

For your setup you could go 265/30 F 295/30 R or 275/30 F 295/30 R with no problems.

I would be able to run 265/30 and 295/30 on AD08's even though they run wide?

Yes there should be no problems at all.

Those offsets are on the conservative side of things.

Awesome, thank you.

Anyone else have any input who have the same wheels?

WOHOOOO!!! I drive this combo! :-D

i just go with this tire size cause our TÜV certification. wasnt sure if it fits without a problem and if it would rub, no chance for the TÜV certification.

but for the next set i would go with wider tires.

See post number 17 in the link below for my experience with AD08's in the sizes you are considering:

http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=522139

You will have an easier time fitting 275's in the front than 295's in the rear. Having 11" rear wheels will help because the tires will be a little more stretched. No matter what, things get tight and each mm counts. Nobody can guarantee fitment unless you choose a narrow tire. I would personally go with a 275/295 combo but I would be prepared to adjust alignment specs and possibly a small spacer. I love the feel of 275's on the front and currently fit 275's on 9.5 et15 wheels. You should know that if you ad kw coilovers you will need et22 or less to clear them on the inside with 275's on 9.5" wheels.

If you are looking for "concrete" guarantees of no rubbing stick with your OEM wheels. Once you push the envelope there are many factors that can impact fitment. Alignment specs, car tolerances, tire variation (brand to brand), etc.
