Hi Guys,

Will 275/35 pilot sports fit on a 220 rim?

Cheers

Most tyre size calculators say the 275 is the widest maximum fit for a 9.5" wide, 19" wheel (eg. http://www.tyresizecalculator.com/ty...dth-calculator). So the answer is yes, given the room in the rear of an M3.

You are welcome to run 275 and they will not rub with stock suspension.

Sure Stu... here's the link, it's quite a comprehensive result, also the one from tire rack appears to be also excellent

Thanks Dave... Much appreciated. I'm exploring how I can reduce the visual gap between rubber and guard at the front (rears are perfect) without breaking the bank and was trying to see if either 275/30s or 265/35s would help my cause much...

Yeah... Been there... Spoke to Josh, apparently they take ages to install and coilovers actually work out cheaper...

Yeah... I looked at those ages ago when I put on my Eibachs. Think I just chose the wrong tire up front (265/30 instead of 265/35). Will try new rubber first and see how much the gap improves...

Yeh that can do it. Different brands also vary a lot.

I just fitted some Hankook z221 295/30/18 semi's and the diameter of them is slightly smaller than the Nitto Invo 305/25/20. The invos tuck under, but the semi's have a gap. They are identical width though.

Good to know.... :-) I'll be sticking with the PSSs though so from what I can deduce I should get an extra half inch of sidewall which should suffice... Hopefully! :-)
