Need Help!!! Another Wheel/tire question

alright guys,

i know there are a bunch of other threads about this but im at work and i can't stay on for too long and search.

i'll be buying a set of 19inch staggered wheels.

Vertini Henessey
19x8.5 front with Et35
19x9.5 rear with Et 45

i was planning on using Falken 452s

235/35/19 front
265/30/19 rear

I will be getting DDM coils and i was wondering will i rub on a 330 coupe and sedan.

The reason its a coupe and sedan is because right now im driving a coupe and i want to get the wheels and coils before bimmerfest but after that, i will be trading it in for a 330 sedan.

So will the tire sizes fit on a sedan which will have ddm coils also?

for the height, i just want a leveled drop.

Thanks a lot for your time.

- Marc

If you're going to lower it I would go with a 255/30/19 rear instead. Coupes can run 265s, but sedans have a very tough time with a 265.

Given that you're running those wheels you specified above, yes all you would need is a fender roll.

Looks like perfect fitments to me. Like Chris has said, all you'll need is some slight fender rolling in the rear with the 265's if you decide to go low.
