Urgent advise needed! - Will the rims/tire combinations fit in the M-sport?

Saw many people fit the M5 replicas rims to the F30 and look great. Today I visit a shop and the only size i can get for the rear wheels is:

rims: 9.5" / 19 / ET34
tire: Goodyear F1 265/35 or 265/30 or 255/35 or 255/30
drop: none (adaptive M suspension)

I want to use 265/35 as the height is the closest to stock and so the speed reading is correct.

Will the tire rubs? (sorry for bad english...)

You can also safely drop 30mm in the rear which is what H&R Sport spring does.

Thanks all! That's very promising answers. I have ordered the M5 rims today.

It worries me because the offset is ET34, which is the smallest compare to other OEMS.
By calculations, it's 26mm more for the outside.

I don't plan to drop the car with new springs at this moment because of the road condition in HK and my driving style...

No rub for sure, my setup is more aggressive with no rub. You will be fine

just receive the call from dealer that Goodyear F1 don't have the 265/35/R19 combinations.

What should I choose? 255/35/R19 or 265/30/R19?
If i use 255/35/R19 for the 9.5" rims, will the shape of the side wall differs a lot with the front wheel?

This site might have the wheel and tire combinations you're looking for so you can see how the sidewalls will look.

Are you sure, ET34 is aggressive on the F30.
What setup do you have?

Got the M5 replicas installed today.

The rear tires seems moved out too much. Almost by an inch.
Don't know what to do. It's a bit odd when look from front or rear side.

That looks pretty aggressive. Assuming you went with 255s then that sticks out a bit too far my liking.

Car looks great though, love the white m sport!

I have 265/30/19 tires on 19x9.5 38 offset in the rear and it's close.

I think what you have looks fine.

looks a little like a low rider with it sticking out that much in the rear...but I like the side profile!
