Question for members running 275/30R19 on front ZCP wheels

I have a quick question for members running 275/30R19 on the stock ZCP wheel on the front of their M3. I did some searching and it appears diameter is the biggest issue with rubbing. I currently have 255/35R19 on the front with the stock ZCP wheels and get slight rubbing. I like the square look and was considering 275/30R19 on the front wheels hopefully eliminating the rubbing and giving me the square look I like. Anyone running 275/30R19 on front do you have any rubbing issues whatsoever? Forgot to mention I run 285/30R19 in the rear with no issues.

Thank You

Got a question for you......did you notice a big difference going from the stock rears to the 285's.

275/30/19 doesn't rub for me. I'm zcp. I have lowered too with gc camber plates and springs.

Thanks for the info. Did I notice a difference? to be honest not really, the car may have lost some of its neutral feeling (tends to have more oversteer) I am by no means as good a driver as many on this board. The individuals who track their vehicles would probably be more apt to notice a difference.

I ran one lap of america this year with a square set and it definitely likes to rotate more. But the advantage of being able to rotate the rubber outweighted the oversteer tendency. Anyone who is an intermediate or advanced trackrat knows that any car can be made to under or over steer at the limit and ultimately it's up to the driver to make the car neutral through the corners to maximize grip

I'll probably be running 275/305's for one lap next year now that I have 650hp

Garage List
2008 BMW E90 M3  [5.00]
I have a 2008 E90 M3 with all stock suspension. I installed a set of 4 rear zcp wheels on my car (all 19x10) with 275/30 zr19 tires on all four corners and I have NO RUBBING. NOTE I have 4 REAR zcp wheels on my car, not the stock zcp staggered wheels.

just install 275/30 R19 AD08 for M3 2011 ZCP , everything stock settings and no any rubbing, so don't worry about that.

I put 275/30/19 and 275/35/19 on most of my ZCP customers' car. No issue.
Some cars might have a hair of rubbing, that's it. Not enough to worry anything at all.

I went with 285s out back and although not the OP, the rear end traction is improved with 285s out back. Can I still break the tires loose, yes I can but it seems to have more control. I also notice that I can lean on the throttle a little earlier post apex, this was the major gain.

275s should fit without issue on a ZCP front wheel, the issue is a 9" wheel won't provide the best support for a 275 width tire. A 275 really should have a 9.5-10" wide wheel, will it fit safely on a 9" wheel, yes it will just not optimal.
