HRE P40 and tire Q

Q for the tire/wheel experts here:

Will 19" HRE P40's with 245/35 front and 295/30 rear tires require spacers to make them flush with the guard?

it depends on the wheel width and offset

based on their normal ET28 9" front and 10.5" rear for M3, you may need a 5-10mm spacer to make them flush.

Thanks rldzhao.....I take it that the above combination with no spacers will still make the wheels and tires more flush than the stock 19"?

we have done custom offsets on the P40's and about +25 all around look really good with those tires
