I think I read you have 30's in the back. I know my set-up will fit and not rub, others have the same set-up. But I'm wondering if I can drop my car. That's my issue.

I don't want to mess with the ride and make it too harsh. That's why I'm leaning towards 35's in the back. The Michelins have substantial shoulders. Plus, I ordered the adaptive suspension and I don't want to over-stress it with too thin a tire and dropping the car too much.

I guess I'll just slap on the tires and wheels and see how much I can drop the car.
Somebody correct me if I wrong because I'm new at this but the individuals that have done over 30 mm drop have mostly gone with 35 front and 30 rear to avoid the rubbing. I am considering going with 40 front and 35 rear because I want to do m performance suspension which is only 10mm drop to keep ride quality. I was pretty impressed with shivaswrath's review and if for any reason my ride is not to my expectations its on BMW.
