Bought new tires, need suggestions/help fitting them!

Hey guys, so as some of you know I am doing a m3 s54
swap and hpf stg 2 swap to my non m coupe, anyways I just bought a rear set
of new tires, I went with the Yokohama advan
neova AD08 in 275/30/19... I know these are going to be hard
to fit but I am prepared to make it work, curently my fenders
are rolled and my car is lowered on PSS9s but I plan on raising
it one step back up lol... The rims I have are miro 359 19 x 9.5 rear with 40mm offset, so far I have talked to my body shop about pulling and they don't suggest doing this as the paint could crack which I'm not taking that chance, I could also get rear camber arms
and dial in some negative camber? Also shave the fenders, I also suggested
rolling the fenders more but again my body shop says there's a chance of paint cracking... So I ask for fanatics help?! Has anyone fit 275/30/19 on a non m coupe out there?

Also I have a question about the front tires, I currently have 235/35/19 on 19 x 8.5 offset 35... Is it possible to fit my
current tires that are 245/35/19 on the front? Or will I need camber plates?

Thanks guys!!!

You'll definitely have to at least roll your rear fenders. You should be fine in the front though.

Let's just say I run 265's with 9.5" width and ET40 (19" BBS CH) in the rear. Even after rolling I can't put two people in the back seats.

9.5 +40 with 275 AD08's is definitely an extremely hard combo to achieve with out negative camber... You'll probably need at least -2 degrees of camber to see any kind of result in clearance. AD08's run extremely wide and the +40 is already aggressive on a Non-M Coupe.

What happened to Toyo R888's?

If you're looking for rear adjustable control arms, you can look into Eibach, Turner Motorsport, Rogue Engineering or UUC. I think KMAC (Ksport?) makes one too, but not sure how the quality is like.

SPC also makes camber arms for E46 as well.

If you think the AD08's are wide, R888's are even wider... they run very beefy. Since you are going with such aggressive camber, you may want to check with the guys in the Road Race section for toe recommendations for better steering and grip levels.

Funny thing, my race car is actually a Civic. Currently running Toyo R1R's on it with -2.5 camber up front 1/16th toe out and -2.0 rear with 0 toe. But these settings will be totally differently for a RWD car.
