Gary...question...

I will be ordering BBS CHs soon for my 330ci...19x8.5, 19x9.5...

My question is this...I want to run 265/30/19 tires in the backs...The tirerack site said it suggests 245/35/19...Is it possible to run the 265s in the back with the CH...if not what is the widest I can go?

265/30R19 will mount on the wheel, but it is a pretty aggressive setup.
The site recommends 245/35R19 because this is much more likely to fit without fender modification. If you're okay with getting the rear lips rolled and possibly dialing in a bit more negative camber to help with clearance, consider the wider 265/30R19.
