Need help with Wheel/Tire size

Im planning to order a new set of wheels for my e92 m3 and i want aggressive. So heres what i was thinking as far as sizing.

Wheels:
19x10f
19x12r

Offsets i have no clue what would work best without rubbing.

Tires:
Hankook v12
255/35/19
305/30/19


I want the wheels and tires to fit aggresively, but no rubbing. i do plan to have minimal stretch so i thought these tire sizes would get me that?

Oh and im going with kw v3 coils son


Anyone running 12" rear wheels who is dropped lemme know what i can do as far as sizing for my new setup! I need help. Post pictures too if anyones got any

Wouldn't it be better to go 275/30/19 in front?

why do you say that?

i had a 245/35/20 on my old wheels and those were 9.5" front width


i figuired if i went 10" front which is a tad bit larger, 255/35 would work wth minimal stretch not too much stretch?

Do the Hankooks run wider than PS2? I think 265 look stretched on my rear 10" ZCPs I couldn't imagine going any narrower.

I had 265/30 on ten inch wheels. It is indeed stretched

Op if your gonna run that agressive of wheels get some agressive tires! I would say 285 front/305 rear or 315 rear

you ran 265 hankook v12 and it was stretched on a 10" wheel??

i could do aggresive thick tires, but i was gonna do a slightly stretched look? i cant decide though.

i figuired out that a 245/35 on 10" wheel and 275/30 on a 11.5" is a serious stretch i believe. i want something slightly less so 255 and 285 rear tires may be my best option

What ET are you going to run for a 11.5" width rim? I've seen 11" ET33 and they are borderline from rubbing and this was with a 295. I've seen 305s on a 11" wide rim but they rubbed without some camber changes in the rear.

You are going to want to run a 275 upfront not the 255, you will have 50mm of stagger when OEM was 20mm.

I may endup doing just 10" front 11" rear in just throwing ideas out there for now.

Et for rear around 25 ish and front 20ish?

tire for rear 11" would b 285 slight stretch and for front why do u say I can't do 255 on 10"?

I don't want a 305 rear tire. It's gonna be 285 on a 11-11.5" wheel.

Up front is 255 on a 10" wheel. This will give me my slightly stretched look and I don't think illsave any rub issues....with mid 20s ET

There is a slight stretch with a 255 on a 9" rim, with a 10" rim it will really be stretched. A 10" rim really should have a 275/30/19 on it up front and do a 295/30/19 out back with the 11" rim.

Here's my ZCP car with 255/35/19 front and 285/30/19 rear. I tried to find a photo that showed the stretch already on the front just a 9" wide rim. A 10" wide rim with my 285s is somewhat stretched.



As far as offsets go with a ET25 front and probably wouldn't go much beyond a 31-33mm rear.
