My Ride: 2000 328ci
Question Need help for my rear suspension/rims.

Hi guys
i have a 2000 328ci and got 19" m3 staggered rims with 275/35/19 in the back and they rub on the fenders the front is fine. How can i get the rubbing to stop? Different tire size? Raise the rear?
What is my best bet, i want the same smooth ride. Is it possible?
Thank you guys!!!

m3 vs 328ci suspension

NEED SOME HELP PLZ!!!
my sister has a 2004 m3 and it seems as if the rear suspension is higher than mine on my 2000 328ci, and we both have the same size rims and tires.
I was wondering if the springs or shocks are different?
Or what is the difference and if i would be able to fit the m3 shocks and springs? And if they do fit, will my car sit a little higher than it does now?

Thank 4 Your Help Guys!!!!!!

You have a 328 she has an M3. They're different cars and have different suspension and wheel/wheel offset tolerances. Roll your fenders and maybe that will help. Next thing after that is to try and get a smaller tire if the wheel allows it (265).
