They should I have 255/35 just tested it out on speed bumps going fast with 4 stock tires in the back - no rubbing. Will post full pics once I get my m sport front bumper on.

You're rears must be slightly tucking right? Do you think you could've gotten away with the 265s if you adjusted the camber?

Did you keep the 235/35/19 fronts? With the smaller diameter, do you probably have a more noticeable gap compared to the rears?

Kept the 235/35 fronts. Gap is not that noticeable at least to me. Hard to speculate about the camber as I've never seen any f30s with adjusted camber and how far the f30s can go.

Very happy with Michelin PSS definitely worth the extra cost over Hankook tires.

265/35 if not lowered, 265/30 if lowered. Fronts 245/35 should be good with or without lowering but 235/35 to be safe. Thats on 8.5 with et35 fronts and 9.5 et 38 rears

Reason they rub is cause you have a too low offset with a wheel thatīs too wide. 265/35 tire isnīt the problem here. Standard ET on 8.5" wheel is around 45, so if you would have at least stuck to above 40 on the offset with a 9.5" wheel, you should have been in the clear.

edit: AND youīre lowered, double fail :/ but it looks good though!

Hindsight is always 20/20 isnt it? Nobody here knew including you with this tire brand combo...Hankook would probably work actually. 255/35 works perfect though.

Well TBH I wouldnīt have tried fitting that wheel myself knowing what the standard width and ET should be, with a tall tyre. Simple mathematics but itīs not always easy to see things clearly, especially not when u really WANT something to work

Is it an 8.5 or 9.5 in the rear? An 8.5 with +35 offset would work. I want your 255s all the way around oh yeah.

Here's a pat on the back bud . I'm sure there were some people that are thankful for me being the guinea pig. H&R sport would work. Hankooks would work as well.

Hi guys. What a bad way to revive this thread. I know most of you guys own 3 series and I'm here own 1 series. My car is not lower, completely stock suspension (standard sport suspension for sport pack).

I have few questions about tires setup. So, I'm planning to buy 19" wheels with et40 front (stock one et45) and et44 rear (stock is et52). I know, I'm pushing myself for too low offset but using the right tires I will be fine. Rolling diameter for 1 series is more or less 25".
The vendor recommends me to use this setup to avoid rubbing:
225/35/19 front=25.2"
245/30/19 rear=24.8"

But the problem is the same with OP, on that setup, tires that available are Yokohama S. Drive and Advan. I'm planning to go with other route which is using same profile for both front and rear to get better tires, such as Michelin PSS, Conti DW, and Hankook.
My second setup (by myself) is:
225/35/19 front=25.2"
245/35/19 rear=25.8"
Do you guys think I will have problem for this one? I know I might go 255/30/19 (rear=25.1") to get better options for tires but because I'm using lower offset, I might rub and most likely will by using 255.

Please help me out guys. Comments and solutions are highly appreciated. Thanks

Just plug in your stock tire size and your proposed tire size to compare:

It's not just tire dimension and fender clearance. Consider the effects on the speedometer reading. With larger tires, you would be going faster than the speedo would tell you. The calculator tells you what you're getting into.

Look into adding a little negative camber. I am running 20x10.5 on the rear and it was rubbing a little so we added a little bit of neg camber to a total of 3 degrees and no more rubbing and after 7k miles my tires are wearing even.

Opps didnt look at the date of the post. A little late to the party...lol

Calc -

Very cool, thank you for that one. Great stats for comparison. Do you know how many times I did that manually. I always knew approx what Plus 1, 2, etc would be but still wanted to be sure. This is a real time saver.
