no on stock suspension. go with a 255.35 if you are doubt. 265 on a 9.5 is "Meaty". but if your are not dropped you have nothing to worry about.

i have 235's on 8.5 and 255's on 9.5 and they looked stretched a bit. i will probably go with 245 and 265 next time. that would look square. but to the OP's question, i'd say you're fine on stock suspension, but if you're dropped, it's hare to say without knowing the drop.

9.5 +35 with a 265 on Coupe WILL rub for fact. I am currently running a 9.5 +33 on a 255/30/19 and it rubs a lot, even with fender rolling and a slight pull. This is with OE camber.

If you plan on adjusting camber, the 255 can work, but definitely not the 265 without some major camber.

Charles u are the man! , i mounted them and sure enought every tight curve i took i felt that rubbing...... anyways im thinking about 3 options which one do u think won't rub (sometimes i do have 4 people in the car or travel with a lot of logadge!) oh and i just want to keep stock cambers and stock aligment due to a big problem i had with my e39 and decided to not ever ever mess around with that stuff lol i wouldn't mind rolling fenders but thats about it. anyways..

#1__ 255/30 19
#2__ 245/30/19
#3__ 245/35/19

245/35 would be a better choice. Since this fitment is quite aggressive, 245's may still give you problems if you do not have rolled fenders and a full cabin of passengers.

great info as im lookin to get 19's 9.5's too, but wouldn't a 245 be really stretched on 9.5's??

also what size tire would be flush and meaty with 19x8.5 +35 all around? 255 35 fronts and maybe 265 30 rear dropped with coilovers front and rear rolled, fit nice?

yes, 245 on 9.5 would be stretched. i have 255 on 9.5 and it's stretched. if you lay the rims on the ground, nothing touches except the rim. that's stretched. i wish i would have gotten 265 at least for 9.5. my stock rears were 8.5 and 245 was almost square, but not quite. i think 255 on 8.5 and 275 on 9.5 would be square.

Hi,

245's are quite stretched on a 9.5" wheel.

235 will be flush and square with a 8.5 +35 fitment. What rear width and offset will you be running? Either way, 265's are a bit too aggressive for a Sedan.

i've got 255 on 9.5 ET +45 and they clear. 265's on ET+35 might rub, especially if you're lowered at all.

with 8.5, the stock offset is +50 and tires are 245. so you're adding 20mm to the width, and pushing the whole wheel 15mm towards the outside. split the width difference half inside half out, and you've got 25mm that your wheel is closer to the fender. thats a whole inch. my VMR V710's are 8.5 +35 up front, but i'm running 235's. the tire looks decent. it's stretched, but no too bad. so with 8.5 +35, 235's should be fine in the rear.

265's are outside the recommended width range for a 8.5" wheel. 255 should be the widest you run on a 8.5" wheel.
