Michelin PSS 275's with spacers and springs

Hey guys I am needing to get new tires and I am wanting to know if I can widen my tires on stock Competition Wheels. My current setup:

2011 Competition e92 m3

RD lowering springs
15mm spacers front/12mm spacers rear

Can I fit 255 front and 275 rear Michelin PSS's without rubbing? Or do I need to stick with the stock sizes 245 front and 265 rear? Thanks in advance!

Where are all these Dallas folks popping up from? You may rub in the rear with the spacer in.

Move the 12mm to the front and run 5 or 10 in the rear. Both will rub with those spacers and lowered. Giving up the spacers are a good trade off for the better tires. Should have came with these tires to begin with.

The classic weekly question about fitting 255/275 tire on ZCP wheels....

imo you don't need spacers on a PSS 255/275 setup, they look pretty aggressive already.
