Hello,

I have 330d Touring with eibach pro-kit on.
Im considering buying bmautosport bbs lm reps staggered setup.

The wheels are 19x8.5 et38 and 19x9.5 et43

Im planning to go with 225/35/19 in front.
What tire size is recommended for the rears without rolling?
Does 255/30/19 fit my touring with et43?
Or should i go with 245/30/19.

What do you all think about 235/35/19 squared?

Well i'm a bit confused and don't want to buy anything that wouldn't fit my car.

Please tell me you're opinion.

Does anyone have the same setup that could maybe post pictures?

Thanks

// Samir

I would stay away from 19" wheels on a non M. You will have issues over bumps and both the ride quality and performance will suffer with bigger wheels. I don't know why people feel the need to go bigger than an 18. Here is my car with 18" VMR V710 staggered 18x8.5 in front with 225/40ZR18 and 18x9.5 in rear with 255/35ZR18. I'm running Koni Sport "yellow" shocks and struts with H&R sport springs. They fit wonderful and absolutely no rubbing. ImageUploadedByBimmerApp1428617397.524800.jpg

Well, im with you. But bbs lm wheels tend to look one size smaller.
And the price isn't much different for the 19".

What et do you have on your wheels?

Well sedan / touring have smaller wheelhouse in the rear so my guess is that I can forget 255 tires.

Offset is 35 in front and 45 in rear. They sit pretty flush with the sides of the wheel wells. Not completely flush, but good enough that it's functional without rubbing and cosmetically looks good. ImageUploadedByBimmerApp1428702325.173280.jpg
