Tire/Wheel combination set up ???

Hi,

Does anyone know if a 19x9F and 19x10R with 19/35/255F and 19/30/285R set-up would work for an e92 M3 coupe? Any other comments or suggest would be welcome. Thanks!

it should - I am running 265/35/18 front and 285/30/18 back on my track setup - no rubbing and a lot clearance...

Thanks sfbimmer, do you think the rim widths are okay? I know some people are running 19x8.5F and 19x10R but I am unsure of their reasoning.

You can't ask a question like this without telling us what offset the wheels are. That will determine how close they will be to the fender for clearance.

All discussions of what will and won't fit need to include offset.

all of this info is considering standard offsets - in the front achieved with spacers

I plan on getting HRE comps for the M3 and when I contacted HRE, they said they will not give out recommended offsets for their wheels until I have actually puchased the wheels. Do you guys have any recommendations on offests (not too aggressive)? Thanks!
