265/30s on nonM and lowering

On a 330ci sports package, I know I could fit 19x9.5 SSR GT3s with a 265/30 tire on the rear. I've seen a picture of it and the guy said there was no rubbing. It looked like a nice height, but if I wanted to lower the car (H&R Cup Kit), would I run into any issues? TIA!

Nope...it all depends on the Offset of the wheel, not the tire. I remember SSR's have conservative offsets, somewhere in the 40et-45et. You can slam it, most you have to do is prolly fender roll it

My Ride: M3 SMGII and 330Ci
I actually had the SSRGT3's on my old 330ci with the H&R cupkit. I ran 265/30 in the rear. I had to have my fenders rolled. The shop I took it too specialized in fabrications on cars. They actually used a hydraulic press on my car. It basically pulled the fenders out about 1/8 inch. After that no rubbing issues. I couldnt even tell that my fender was modified.

I got 265/30/19 on 9.5 on the rear and it initially rubbed, but like said before a little fender rolling and it was good. Now the the car looks very agressive....
