e92 ZCP Wheels - Front 265 Rear 295

Hi all

I'm currently running on 265/30/19 front and 295/30/19 rear with PS2. I'm due to change to PS4S soon. should i stick to this configuration to 245/35/19 front and 265/35/19 rear?

comments and/or suggestions please?

Thanks/Dan

Dan the 265/295 setup will fit on the ZCP wheels but it won't be optimum. I would run a 255/35/19 and 275/35/19 with the OEM ZCP wheels if you want the PS4S. I prefer the 285s out back but they don't make a 285/30/19 with the PS4S.

Agreed (although perhaps 275/30 on the rear).

I am 255/35/19 and 285/30/19 and it's been working well (Continentals).

Wow 295 on a 10" width wheel is insane. You're probably at risk of the tire ripping its beads out if you put a lot of stress on it. I would suggest 255/35/19 and 275/35/19. Your overall diameter only increases by 1% and you retain the comfort of a 35 profile tire.

No that won't happen. In fact a 10" width is the minimum per specs. It's not optimum but it's not dangerous.

When I had my OEM ZCPs I ran the Conti 5ps in the 255/285 setup. Liked it a lot. I like my 19x10&19x11 wheels better though with 275/30/19 and 295/30/19 Mich PSS.

I run 265/35 up front and 275/35 rear with 19x10s all around. Stock zcp suspension, minor rub in the front on off camber slow turns, otherwise perfect

Ran 265/30 front 295/30 r888rs no problem at all as stated better would be a 285/30 but that's an odd size that not many make and it is rather expensive to replace.

I don't know where you're going off of, but I use this handy little chart:

http://www.tyresizecalculator.com/ch...rim-size-chart

I have 295 on a 10.5 wheel and it has a pretty good amount of meat protruding already. Any more is not going to be healthy.

See post below yours...I am going off of the manufacturers info, IMHO thats straight from the horses mouth.

I suppose different tires have different recommendations...I'd still use the chart as a rule of thumb. Feel free to follow the manufacturer's recs though, I'm sure it will be fine.

Most 295 tires min. rim width are 10". Its not something I would do. I went with 19x10 and 19x11 for my 275/295 setup.
