1 Attachment(s)
Hey fellas...I need some help. I have posted my E46 for you guys to see but I want some nice tires to go on my ride but dont know what to put on my 19 inch rims. Do you guys have any suggestions? I want a wide aggressive stance but without scrubbing and rubbing the car ya know? Let me know.....Thanks!

what width and offset are your wheels?

WT forum

235/35/19 front
255/30/19 rear

Depending on offset that should work fine

peanutbarnes 11-02-2012 06:55 PM

I am so sorry guys but I am not car savvy at all. What is the offset and how do I get that information? When I bought the car it had those rims on it and I am very sure that they didnt come from the factory on the car. The guy just bought them shortly before he sold the car to me.

If you like the size it has now and it doesn't rub use the same size.

I wanna go wider on the back tho!

I have a 325i lowered and im running 19's- My rear is a 9.5" rim and my front is a 9- I run 265's on the back- Youll need to roll your fenders if you have people in the back often or if you hit a lot of pot holes--- before i rolled and lowered my car i rarely rubbed- I never saw any problems- I think my setup is a 265 25 19- and in the front its a 235 30 19-- not sure tho- check some wheel size calculators online so you can find th right profile so your speedo reads accurate-

I ran Generals exlaim UHP's a few years back- not a bad tire and handled the stagger well- I'm now running hankook ventus v-12 and love them:bow:-- my buddy has them on his v10 m5 and he hasnt had an issue- my thoughts...If he can run them with 500hp i think my 325 with 215-220hp will be fine haha:blah:

265/25/19 ?? that's crazy. I do not suggest this

DesiredM 11-03-2012 04:32 AM

265 25 19 doesn't even exist does it?

Just do 235/35/19 front and 255/30/19 rear, no issues and it will fit nicely.

Mcbridges11 11-03-2012 05:52 AM

265 and i forget the profile - but it's low - has to be to not change the diameter of the rim and tire - I love my setup and it handles like a gem ... I don't see a problem with and and I've been running my 19s for the past 4 summers

peanutbarnes 11-03-2012 10:55 PM

I have this size on there already so you dont think I can go wider on the back?

DesiredM 11-03-2012 11:05 PM

Stick with 255 you have no reason or need to go wider and you eliminate any chance of possible rubbing by sticking with a 255 rear

It all depends on the offset of your current wheels. It should be stamped somewhere on the inside of the wheel itself. Do a search or Google to get a little more informed so you know the right questions to ask. I run 245/35/19 up front and 265/30/19 rear on my sedan with a +40 offset up front and +45 rear with no rubbing on Hankook V12's.

Bmcknight01 11-30-2012 11:23 AM

Yes as stated before. It all depends on the width and the offset your wheels. I had a 19x9.5 +30 square set up I ran with 235 all the way around. It looked pretty wide with a good agressive stretch on all four tires. My car is also stanced so you might want to go a little wider in the rear.

I have 19s with tires that dont fit.. well they do.. in the front and in the back until you go over a bump or try to put people in. the tires on there now are 295/35/19 back and 295/30/19 ... i feel like i wanna get the side wall thinner.. like low profiles maybe.. go for 255/25/19.. do those exist?

I've never seen tires in a 255/25/19. Post up your wheel specs.

How did you ever fit 295/35/19s in the rear on a non-m? That doesn't seem like it's possible unless your car is a complete 4x4..
