Tyres ripping my arches sitting on 235/35/19" 8.5 Et 35 please help
As my title please guys i have bmw e46 320cd m sport convertible and treated my self to a new set of wheels on ebay, which are a offset 5x120 19x 8.5 ET35
TYRE SIZE 235/35/19" if that makes sense to you. i have just bought coil overs and had to lift the car to the max to stop it rubbing and it now looks like a bloody tractor from the back and i am not happy with my car now. I wished i left the standard mv2 wheels on now and not spent 700 on them to be honest, has anyone had any bother with this same setup before or have i problems elsewhere, i do not no if it is catching the arch lip or hitting the top of the inner arch top and bumper etc. Any info on how to keep them on the car a bit lower and not rubbing my arch would be great.
I can also get some photos on here to show you tomorrow.

its on the rears only, you don't have liners on the back do you:idea::idea:

Yes you do. Take the tire off and see where it is rubbing and cut out that part and if its rubbing metal, have your fenders rolled. if that doesnt work then you may want to get a set of 18's. You take photos yet?

I took all my liners out

lower profile tyres? didn't know 19's could fit

Roll or cut your fenders.

Then complain if you still rub.
