Such a great deal on tires, i'm going to have to ask a stupid question.
 
the deal is that i'm getting two 285/30/19 tires for under 200, but i need to know if they will fit the 19" m3 wheels that i have(chrome, multi double spoked, etc.)...so far i've been finding mixed opinions, but the deal on the tires is so good, that i'm willing to make a stupid thread to find out the answer before i commit to buy the tires in two days.
can anyone shine some light on this?

i want to know if the 285 will fit the m3 wheels, and if there are any potential problems.

If you currently have 275's, the 285's should fit the M3 rims. The only potential problem would be rubbing, which depends on offset.

thanks, i opened wikipedia's page on offsets, and more calculations, lol...but yes, i have the 275's on, and they only rub when i make tight u-turns, so i'm guessing same situation with the 285's, otherwise i'll just find some 5mm hubcentric spacers...

285's will work but they may look at bit bulgy on the OE M3 rear wheel since it is a slightly wide.

well thanks for another definitive answer, and until i can afford a set of those csl wheels, these rims are going to have to do...lol.
