235 on a 9.5" will have a good amount of stretch, which you may not like. I would throw at least a 245 tire on it.

Sometimes a narrow 255 like a Toyo T1R may work on a Sedan, depending on your height and alignment.

It would be a 245/35/19 rear. Since you are lowering, unfortunately I cant guarantee you wont rub. Fender rolling will most likely be required.

You can easily run a 235/35-19 on the VB3 19x8.5 +40 on all 4 corners. If you wanted to go up to a 9.5 on the back I would suggest a 245, as the 235 is going to be pretty stretched. However, if you like the stretched look than 235 would be the way to go!

I would recommend the Falken FK452, but unfortunately they do not offer the 255/30/19 size, only 255/35 which is too tall.

245's can work on the rear, but if you plan on going Non-Stagg and receive the longest life out of your tires, 235 all around would be the most ideal setup.

For an e46 318i sedan, would 255/30/19 work on a 19x9.0 rim with +40 offset? this is for the rear. please help
