i know the 295 will fit, hesitant about the 305

i am running HRE monoblock p43 19inch wheels.

YES, those 305 TOYO's will work, if your P43's are 19x10.5 +25 to +28 offset.

I agree. As long as you have a 10.5" width or larger, you should be fine.

We are really good about shipping R888's out within 24 hours after the purchase. We have a few sets in stock so please feel free to give us a call if you have any additional questions or concerns.

You will fit no problem, just make sure you got a 10.5" rim or larger

If you install 305's in the rear what size do you plan on installing in the front?

i know the 305 will fit the rim...what i meant to ask was wether it would rub in back (fenders ect..)


.i am going to run a 265 up front (dont make a 275)...

but also worried that if i go with a 305 the diameter of the wheel is to big a difference between the 265 and 305, and that the 265 and 295 are closer in diameter.

Then tell me the size of the rim and the offset, and I can tell you either way if it will work or not.

I can't give you a definitive answer to your open-ended question without these details.

I'm trying to help, but you gotta work with me here bro...

Are you doing this for looks or performance? A 305 width R888 seems pretty excessive.

Cool that's the key piece of info that I needed.

Now you didn't state what width the rear P43's are...but I'll assume it's 10.5" correct?

If so...

Then the answer is YES, those 305/30/19 Toyo R888's will fit without rubbing or having to roll the fenders.

All manufacturers post what rim width range they recommend for each tire. So once you pick what tire you want go to that manufacturer's website and look at what width they recommend for your rim width.

In the 15 years that I have been putting together tire and wheel fitments for BMW cars, here is what I recommend:

19x10" wheel: 295/30/19

20x10" wheel: 295/25/20

This is the safe 'max' rubber sizing for a wheel that has a 10" width.

This is a general rule of thumb that I have always used. (with great success)

Porsche runs an 11" wheel with the 295/30/19s. I am running 305s' now on the 11's.

Hi I'm getting supercharged in december and was wondering what tire/size i should get? i have the stock ZCP wheel setup on my m3, which is 19x10 in the rear and 19x9 in the front. the problem is I'm lowered on the KW sleeve kit which is about 1-1.2 inches all around. I was thinking of going 295/30/19 for the rear and maybe a 265 or 275 for the front. What do you recommend?? i currently have spacers on my car and will remove them with the new tires. As of tires my options are Nitto (NTO5), Michelin (PSS), Falken
(RT-615K), Bridgestone (RE-11), and Toyo (R1R). Which would you recommend? Thank you for you response and it is much appreciated!
