Question Help me choose rim + tire sizes.

Option 1:

M359
19x9 +18
19x10 +25

245/35/19 and 275/30/19 PSS

Option 2:

M359
19x9 +18
19x10 +25

255/35/19 and 275/30/19 PSS

Option 3:

M359
19x10 +25 (Square)

275/30/19 (Square) PSS

Questions:

Will these rub on non-EDC stock suspension?
Will these rub if I lower the car on either 1) KW Sleeve 2) Eibach Springs?

Thanks a lot guys!

Might work in the rear but too tall for the front. Will rub the fender liner like crazy when turning.

Your tire sizes are all way off. The offset/size combination on the BBS CH-R in M3 fitment are really optimized for a 245/275 combination or a 245/285 combination. With 20" wheels, you need:

245/30/20 and 275/30/20 or 245/30/20 and 285/25/20. A 295 in the rear would fit, but the front rear width stagger is excessive

OP- First of all i wouldn't put 20's on an M3. The only thing I would change about the above recommendation is 285/30/20 is a much better option than 285/25/20. 285/30 has been used by many successfully. 285/25 are extremely low profile. If it were me, I would choose 255/30/20 for the front and 285/30/20 for the rear. The 255/30/20's will probably hit the liner at full lock but I would prefer the slight increase in tire profile over a 245/30/20.

Yes, the offset is designed for the M3. I would keep your 285/30/20 rear tires and get a set of 255/30 or 245/30 fronts and call it a day. Your 255/35/20's are a full inch too large. 255/35 is the right size for a 19" wheel not a 20" (in fact some people complain about rubbing at full lock with 255/35/19's).
