Advise On This Combo (Advan RS + PS2 Sizings)

Yokohama Advan RS for M3
Front: 19 - 9.0 +22
Rear: 19 - 10.0 +20

I am quite lost on how to size the tires for the rims with the offsets as above. I find it weird that my stock M3 is running on 18s 245/40 fronts and 265/40 rears. I am not sure what sizing I should go without making the car look too high as I cant lower my car. Its got the EDC thing which controls dampening and all. If you were me, what size would you get. For me, its function over form as a priority. I find the 265s on the rear break traction a bit faster than I would expect so going slightly wider is a must. Most importantly I am thinking of doing 255/35 front and rear 275/30. Would the front's be ok without rubbing? Pls advise fellow M3ers.

Wow cool! Did you feel you lost any steering feel by going 255s on the front? I am lost on this one.

Dude

Don't sweat it. At the front the 255's will be fine. You are increasing the rolling radius of the rim by a mere 3.5mm or 1% relative to the OEM 19 size of 245/35. This will be unnoticeable in reality. Shit a hard day at the track could wear a tyre down that much. I can't imagine rubbing would be a problem since the stock ride height is generous and should allow a decent bit of play.

At the back, 275/30 will work fine on the 10" rim, but beware you are decreasing rolling radius by 10.25mm or 3%, so your speedo will read slightly higher than your actual speed. This isn't a major problem though, since you are erring on the correct side (if you live in a pretty speedtrapish type of place).

I'm thinking about getting this too. Can you put 285's in the rear? If so what size? What offset do I need for these wheels so that the wheel is flush with the fender?

i have advan RS wheels at home waiting for my car... i got Pzero Nero tires in 245/35 and 275/30

if you can find 285/30 tires, that should fit with no problems too.

Your rears seem a little small. Should use 35 profile on the rears. 275/30/19 is -3.166% smaller than OE tires (265/35/19).

275/30 should work fine but there will be a very big fender gap... see below...

guess you might be right about that... i think the next set of tires i just might switch it up to 275/35 instead... well right now i already have my tires so its too late. i dont want to go through the hassle of exchanging them (ordered online)... i guess the alternative is to lower the car with a set of springs. i'll decide when i see how big the fender gap is.

in my opinion, the perfect combination is 255/35-19 front and 285/30-19 rear. you might be able to fit the 295/30-19 which is also another combination we use on 10~10.5" wheels for the M3 with a less aggressive offset of about 25 or so.

Hope this helps.

Do these wheels work fine with the TPMS?
