Need to know if I will rub or not, and how to guarantee I won't

2008 e92 with EDC
OEM 219 18's 245/40 front - 265 / 40 rear (OEM PS2)
KW Sleeves - the lowest that KW recommends
MS 15mm front 12mm rear spacers

Is this very aggressive? is it moderate? do you think its 100% safe?

The answer really is maybe. Depends on your alignment settings and tolerances of your car. Put them on and test them out. Nothing catastrophic is going to happen. If the fronts rub with the 15mm spacers, try the 12mm's. Worst case you will need to order a second set of 12mm spacers...

Not my experience. My E92 seems to have more room but that could be due to a change in my alignment settings.

Car: 09 E92

Wheels: TE37's 19x9.5 fronts/19x10.5 rears

Tires: (F) 265/35/19 BFG Sport Comps, (R) 285/35/19 Continental Contisport Contact 3

Suspension: Stock

EDC Setting: Off

Alignment: Stock

Fender Modifications: None

Rubbing: Front passenger side tire touches the fender liner at 3/4 turn either way. Rears rub going over bumps.

I'll be updating this when I go for an alignment to get the rear camber a bit more negative camber. Might go down to a 255/35/19 for the fronts to eliminate the rubbing.

front: 245/40/19
rear: 265/40/19

or

front: 255/40/19
rear: 276/40/19

I'm opting for the .../40/19 because the roads in boston are shit, but I need those black ZCP's in my life!

Will not work. The tires will be too tall and will rub like crazy. Plus gearing and speedometer impact. You will need 18's if you want to have thicker tire side walls.

Thank for the quick reply. That's what i thought, I'll try to get the sidewalls as tall as possible while keeping 19's. I know 255/35/19 275/35/19 works, does anyone know if the size up works?

265/35/19 285/35/19
I have heard of one person successfully using 265/35/19 in the front on a 19x10 comp wheel. It probably worked because the tires are more stretched. I wouldn't recommend it. Some people rub at full lock with 255/35/19 but I wouldn't hesitate to use that size. Just stick with the 255/275 combo. It's the best option IMO.

update:

after a few hundred miles and various driving situations I've noticed some slight rubbing in the rear, driveways and speedbumps mostly....I'll be removing my spacers and putting them up FS later this week....oh well...that stance alone with the tires, without spacers will be good enough for me...
