Wheel and tire guidance needed

I am purchasing a set of Hyperblack Alufelgen CS7 wheels for my stock M3.

http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...ight=alufelgen

The wheels are F 19x8.5ET15 and R 19x9.5ET20. Can I run 255/35/19 in the front with 285/35/19 in the rear (RE-11's). Again, I have stock suspension.

I have several questions and I will ask them in order of importance. First, do you think I will have any rubbing issues? Second, what do you think this will do to the handling of the car? Third, what do you think this will do to the cosmetics of the car?

Depending on answers above, what do you recommend I select for tires. I have searched the forum and have not found definitive answers to these questions. Thanks for any insight you can provide.

I would love to say that would be fine but I do not know anybody that runs that setup without some type of lowering spring. I believe cosmetically speaking that it would look more aggressive which suits my preference. I know that DLSJ5 runs that exact same rear tire, however I do not know his wheels.

Thanks--other thoughts. Lowering would actually increase the chance of rubbing, correct?

A 275/35 rear would be a better choice since the diameter will be very close to stock.

It's too bad we don't have the wheel/tire calculator that the E90 side has. It's pretty useful.

Everything looks fine but the 35 profile of the rear tire. I don't think it`ll rub since I have seen much more aggressive offsets (19x11) with 295/30/19 tires without rubbing. I would recommend 255/35/19 and 275/35/19 for a worry-free setup or 285/35/19 if you are up for the challenge.
