Just get the new ContinentalExtreme Sport tires. Suppose to be comparable to the Michelins, cheaper and most importantly, come in the proper sizes.

I never considered Continentals before but these tires are getting great reviews.

Unfortunately they don't make them in 295/30/19s.

Thank for the input all.

I went with a 19x9 wheel up front at ET25 and 19.10.5 in the back at ET26. It should work. car is lowered on KW V3

Good move. A 295 on a 10" wheel is less than ideal. 10.5 or 11 is better.

The GTS wheel comes in 10.5"??

The BBS FI rears rub with 295/30-19 (lowered) with et23. It's going to be close and probably rub if you're lowered with et26.

I would personally recommend 265/30/19 and 295/30/19 to maintain a factory stagger. Michelin PS4S.

With 255/35/19 and 285/30/19 or 295/30/19 the traction control will cut in due to the change in wheel diameter.

In regards to above posts Dinan has been running/recommending 295/30/19 on 10" wheels since forever.

If you choose to go smaller tires 255/35/19 and 285/35/19 for better ride quality and probably similar/better performance.

With 255/35/19 and 285/30/19 or 295/30/19 the traction control will cut in due to the change in wheel diameter.

285/35/19 is too big of a overall diameter and will rub like crazy in the rear.

I run 255/35/19 and 295/30/19 and traction control is no different than when I was running a 275/35/19 rear.

OK i see it now the diamater is a lil big (26.9in) lol....

My recommendation is Michelin PS4S 265/30/19 and 285/30/19 or 295/30/19 for the ZCP. But for any other wheel which is 9.5 in front and 10.5 rear I would def have to run a 275/30/19 front and 295/30/19 rear I feel these are the best sizes to get for the E9x.

If anything skip the 19" wheels go 18" 9.5 in front and 10.5 in rear like Volk and they are lightweight and run 275/35/18 and 295/35/18.. I would go this route myself however I dont like how Volks look.

But the GTS ran a 285/30-19 rear from BMW.

This is all GREAT stuff everyone thank you for the input. What offset is everyone running in the rear with 295/30/19 in the back? im looking at a ET 26 setup in the rear and want to know if rubbing is an issue.

I run PS7s 19x10.5 et25 with 295/30 pss and it rubs on the liner at the junction between the outer fender and rear bumper. I don' like it this close and currently looking for either a 10" wheel or 285 tire.

Adding camber on these cars at the rear pushes out the bottom of the wheel instead of bringing in the tops so this is not a solution.

Your et is a mm inset from mine but still very similar. Would strongly suggest a 285 rear tire or find the most narrow 295.
