Tire size for 19" V710s on H&R springs?

Hey guys,

Before you bust my chops. I did read over 10 pages of this forum before starting this. It seems there is alot of opinion or just cars not set up exactly how I am going to (in the tread).

I know this is a popular wheel and I think it is pretty popular to put the H&R springs to lower the car as well. I wanted to get the V710s and put them on with my OEM tires but I need new rears now. So now I am going to lower the car with springs, get V710s and ____________ size tires that will fit, not rub, look good etc.

I know the V710 is the same size as a stock rim so stock rims with springs would be another good source of imput for me as well.

I wouldnt mind going wider like I did on my E46 however I am just not that familiar with the E92 tire fitment since I bought mine yesterday.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, especially from people with this setup.

Thanks in advance!

245/35/19F 285/30/19R worked nice and aggresive for me on H&R, no rubbing at all, some people do 255 in the front but depending on the brand of tire it could rub at full steering lock.

Do you think a 285 would work with any tire? Some people were saying that only works with the nitto invo bc of the rounded shape I think. I could be wrong.

Your car looks amazing by the way.

We have 295/30 AD08's on a 10" wheel on our e92 M3 and it doesn't rub. It is also dropped on coilovers. The AD08's also run a little wide and they are very square. I think you would be OK running a 295/30.

245 285 tire setup should work best in my opinion.

Since Invo's offer a more rounded sidewall, you should be able to pull a 285 in the rear without a problem. 245 fronts will be perfect.
