Question need help...fellow fanatics!!!

hello everyone, im going to be running 19x8.5 35mm offset front and 19x9.5 40mm offset in the rear for a '03 325i. im going to be running 235/35/19 up front and 265/30/19 in the rear with h&r sport springs. im looking into generals, would they rub on my car? i know most people are saying toyo but for half the price and maybe a better tire, maybe generals are the way to go. anyone experience this on their car and does it rub? let me know guys. thanks. ryan

I can let you know that the rear is fine.

The problem is the front. This is where a Toyo might be a better choice. The front offset of 35 is VERY aggressive for a 3 sedan. Especially with a drop, you run a high chance of rubbing.

The rear tire size and offset looks fine, like I said.

If you really need to go with the Exclaims, then you won't know if you rub or not till you put them on really. If you do end up rubbing, you can have your fenders rolled. But I still say go with of luck!
