Help with Tires Set-Up (Size)

Hi everyone,

I am debating if I need more meat on my rear tires. Here is my current set-up:

Front Wheels- VIP VRS05 19x9 +31
Rear Wheels - VIP VRS05 19x10.5 +35

Front Tires - 245/30/19
Rear Tires - 275/30/19

What do you guys think on switching from a 275/30 to 285/35 on my rear and 245/30 to 245/35? Also, my e93 have an eibach prokit suspension.

I will try to upload some pictures of my current set-up later.

The 245.30 and 275.30s are to short...

I would run a standard GTS sizes with this setup. A 255.35.19 and a 285.30.19. The 10.5" wheel will support a 295 out back which is nice as this opens the door for getting a set of Mich PSS's as the 285s aren't available with the Mich. PSS. However, that being said the 9" front wheel with the ET31 offset would be best with a 255.35.19 and putting a 295 out back would be just to much stagger. Hence the 255/285 setup.

A 285.35.19 is way to tall, don't go beyond a 285.30.19. If you want more sidewall run a 275.35.19 out back, this is also available and done all the time with Mich PSS on ZCP cars.
