E93 Tire set-up with stock wheels

Hi guys,

I know a stock tire set-up is 245/35/19 and 265/35/19, but can I go with 255/35/19 and 275/35/19? How would the latter one impact the car? Maybe not much of difference, I guess?

And also, how often do you guys do the alignment job to your car?

I appreciate your time.

I'll comment as I feel most people aren't going to chime in cuz this has been discussed multiple times.

For the front: Going from 245/35/19 to 255/35/19, it is a overall diameter difference of +0.8%. Your speedometer will read a bit slower than your actual speed (example: 60mph on your speedo, but you are actually going 60.48mph)

For the rear: 265/35/19 to 275/35/19, diameter difference is +1.1%.

Not a huge difference really, but you'll potentially gain a bit better handling performance due to the wider track. A lot of peeps are running these sizes.

*Note: If you're going from say stock Michelin PSS in stock sizing to a lesser performing tire with wider sizing, you may be hindering the overall performance.

I had 255/35 - 275/35 before. No problems. You can run them just fine.
