Does anyone know if 19's will fit without rolling the fenders? I drive a 2001 325ci. I did lower my ride with Intrax springs, supposely 1.5" all around...though I don't see it but anyways...can I go 19's without rolling? Thanks! :dunno:

19x???
if 8.5, you should be fine...
... if the offset is right, if the rolling diameter is not too large, if the tire is not too wide, etc.

Am I the only person that had slightly rubbing problems on the front running 19"x 8.5" 235/35/19 with Continental Conti-Sport Contact II's ?

Didn't have to have my arches rolled at the front, but had to have the plastic liner 'manipulated' slightly.

Thanks,
Stuart.

Hmm, Stu, i have 19x8.5s ET 38 wiht 235/35/19 Toyo T1-S in the front and lowered on HR Sport w/Stock SP Shocks. and i have never rubbed the front tires.... :dunno:

one thing that should be brought to attention is that the T1-S have a narrow sidewall, meaning that it goes inwards, not straight. Perhaps thats why... :dunno: then again, i havent heard of any one else running other tires rubbing in the front on 19x8.5s...

It all depends on the width of the Rim, Offset of the Rim, and the tire size.

Thanks for the info everyone. From the replies it looks as if I can go 19x9's on the rear without any mods, if I get the right tire size that is. Thanks again!
