Widest Tire on BBS LM?

Wondering if any tire/wheel gurus and people that have a set of these tell me how wide I can go with these wheels.

LM
Front 19x8.5 et32 *
Rear 19x10 et25

Im currently on stock sizes of
F -245/35 R-265-35, but its time for new tires and I want to go wider....

I am pretty low on KW and use spacers with Yoko AD08's. But wonder if I can go wider to not use spacers anymore perhaps?

Or should I just stick to stock and spacers?

TIA

Why don't you ditch the spacers and the fronts? Move your rears to the front and pick up a set of 11" rears? You can then run 295/275

Trying to ditch the spacers yes, but getting another set for the rear in terms of size upgrade is not in the financial books lol. Need new tires and upgrading to BBK and who knows how long it will take to sell 2 wheels opposed to 4.

What I get from your response though is I can run 275's on a 10' wheel?

Yah, you can do 285/30 which is a GTS size, but not many brands make them.

Problem is your fronts are only 8.5 wide. You can run 245/35 on that but then that's too much stagger front to back.

I hear you on the finances, though. Sell them to Bashar368 since he'd like to re-barrel them anyways hahahaha. Win Win

Front run a 255/35 or a 265/30. 285/30 or 295/30 rear would fit good... It would even work with a 5mm spacer rear and 10 front or more for flushness... and believe it or not Dinan runs/recommend 295/30 a that on their 19x10 lightweight wheels.

I read somewhere, 255/35 295/30 should be alright.

You think that would be fine in terms of the combo?

Yep for example I ran a 265/35 305/30 on my old F80... worked like a charm. Just code in Euro MDM and you should be golden.
