Newbie - Bmw M3 Rim/tires Help!

Hello,

I just ordered 20" staggered rims for my 2008 BMW M3 E93. They recommended 255/30/20 FRONT and 305/25/20 REAR. My car is about 1.5 inch lowered.

Staggered Concavo CW5 RIMS (9" FRONT, 10.5" REAR)

Will these tires fit on my rims and car without rubbing? I really appreciate if you can also find me a place to buy these tires for a good deal.

Please let me know if they do. I want to put 305s on my stockers.

No they don't. Fronts are ok but rears are too much. 295/25 looks good but in my own experience 285/30 are the best for M3s E9X.

NOTE: My car is about 1.5 inches lowered.

So you think I should get the 285s then in the back? I can do that no problem.

Did you have any problems with rubbing? How was the drive experience with tires that are so low profile like that? The roads are crappy after the winter here in Canada and I don't want to worry about every little thing on the road.

No problems, no rubbing. I'm suggesting 30 series tires. 285/30/20 rears.

Sorry to threadjack, but would 295/25/20 work on a 10.5" rim?

I have 295's on an 11 inch rim and its a perfect fit, 10.5 will have the tire poking beyond the rim too much for my taste, unless that is the look you are going for.

Yep, that's my preference!
