I've tried both 265/35 and 255/35 and both rub.

I have 285/35 for rears and I get a bit of rubbing, but with a bit more neg camber I should be good. Go with 285/30 if you want to be safe, but I think 295/30 should be good too.

I have TE37's in 19x9.5 ET +22 and 19x10.5 ET +22. The tires I'm using have a square profile on the shoulders.
Thanks for the info on the fronts especially given you actually got to try the other two set ups. I have been told the E93 has more wheel clearance but I can find anywhere to confirm this. Hopefully someone else will be able to help there.

I have never heard that e93's have more wheel clearance. I honestly don't know that anyone can confirm a difference in wheel clearance from e90, e92, e93. I know the non-M3 cars do have differences in clearances. That being said, I think my e92 might have more clearance than my e90 did but the difference could be due to a change in camber settings.

I have had Te37 SL's with yokohama AD08 tires (which run wider than most tires). See post #17 in the link below for my fitment.

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


You will be able to get 275's to fit in the front but they may rub slightly at full lock and you will want to maximize your camber to make them look and fit correctly. 295's in the rear will most likely rub slightly. Unfortunately you probably need et27 to eliminate the rubbing in the rear completely with 295's. It didn't rub too bad for me and only on large dips in the road. I would be hesitant to run that size now that I am much lower on coilovers. If I got another set I would probably go with 275/30 front and 285/30 rear or 255/35 front and 275/35 rear. 265/30 in the front will work but I don't like how short that tire is (smaller side-wall).

Ill be looking for a set of 18x10.5 square in the near future. Would i have less or more clearance/fitment issues with 275/35/18 in the front due to profile and a 1" wider rim? And, why didn't you go with a square 18x10.5 setup if you're running square tires? Thanks!

I'm running square tires because of performance, not trying to save tires life or anything.

I used to run both 275/35/18 and 285/35/18 square tires on 18x10.5 square rims, you might hit the front fender liner just a little. The only thing to look for would be the clearance between front wheels and coilovers/springs.

Wow! 295/30 is a lot of tire for a 9.5" rim! Don't you lose some performance by over-tiring the wheel?

Of course it loses some due to donut style and a little bit less tires. However, the gain is well over the lose here.

I run 255/35 Front's and 295/30 Rears Michelin PSS on Volk TE37SL's. I spent a lot of time investigating, I wanted traction because my car is supercharged. But, I think I got it wrong. I have a slight rub in the back, which limits how low I bring down the back.

When I do it again I will go 265/30 Front, 285/30 Rear.

Very interesting. I haven't lowered my E93 as of yet so I may go with the 295s and when its time to replace them I will be ready to lower the car.

I'm seriously thinking about pulling the trigger on these. From researching I see 18x9.5 22 and 18x10.5 20 is the way to go but I'm still unsure on the tire size. I'm planning on super charging at the end of the year so I want as much rubber as possible. Will 265/35 and 295/35 rub on stock zcp suspension or is it better to do 265/30 and 295/30?

I have 265/35 and 285/35, no rubbing at all. I wanted to go with 295/35 as well but didn't want to risk any incidental rubbing. Am lowered on KW sleeveovers and have had zero issues with my setup. Not sure about 295 in the rear but 265/35 in front has no issues.

18 vs 19 have differently shaped spokes and amount of lip. It should be pretty obvious those are 18"s

Tire size is your usual 265/35 F 285/35 R
