    M3 Wheels/Tires on E90 335i LCI... HELP!! :D

    Alright everyone,
    I think I can speak on behalf on nearly all e9x 335i owners that we are collectively jealous of those with M3's running beautifully wide wheels and tires.
    They look better, gain traction better, and are just bada$$.\

    I personally have a 2009 e90 335i ZMP, and was wondering what I would have to do in order to run 19/9.5/255 front and 19/10.5/295 rears.

    Could it be done with only rolling my fenders?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You know what, this could be done a whole lot easier. Why don't you just come try my wheels on?

    If you want to run full size tires and not rub like it's your job the short answer is no. You could of course run your coilovers at max height and run silly camber and you might get away with it but I'd be guessing. I'm currently running 225/35 and 255/30 on 9" and 10" respectively and honestly the rear is pushing it if you put anything besides you in the car and like to drive at all. There is also the option of 'fender flaring' but again I think it messes up the lines of the car.

    295s will not work. Simply too big of a tire.

    If you stick with the 235/35/19 and the 265/30/19 size you will have a little stretch in the rear...might need some camber adjustment and a lot of fender rolling to get it to run nicely.

    You can get away with a 255 profile and an aggressive offset wheel in the back (+22) without an issue on an E90.

    255 in the front is not gonna cut it. You will start eating up fenderliners and if you are too low you risk kinking the fender. 9.5 will work but you have to stretch the tire a little bit with a 235/35.

    on my girls coupe we run 19x10 +22 all around with a 235/35/19 tire. Stanceworks style. We've had no issues at all other than having to roll the fenders because the rear wheels would hit..not the tires, but the wheels LOL
