435i - 19" Aggressive Rears Mounted

So I am finally getting around to uploading some pictures of my 435i with the wheels coming off of my E92 335. I decided to upsize tires slightly from OEM and went with Michelin PSS based on prior experiences with them.

Note: I am planning on taking some proper pictures with my DSLR but time has not been my friend recently (I'm married now).

Specs:
435i M-Sport w/ DHP (Stock suspension)

Alufelgen SF-71
F: 19 x 8.5 ET35 - 235/40/19 Michelin PSS
R: 19 x 9.5 ET35 - 265/35/19 Michelin PSS

The fit is close but there is no rubbing at all even when the tire gets tucked into the wheel well. I do not know if the F32 has a bit more room in the rear compared to the F30 but this is a problem free setup for me.

I've thought about it. All my other cars have had coil-overs. It feels like a big shift for me, but my wife is more comfortable in the passenger seat in comfort mode and I can still use Sport mode if I want to play.

Coilovers handle bumps on turns much better than the DHP/sport springs. I am thinking of Dinan springs but I might end up staying stock.

Do you think there would be an issue with an M performance or h&r sport drop based on what you saw/know so far?

I know that those are not very aggressive drops so you may be ok. I would rather you take that advice from those who have tried it though. I just want to be honest with you.

From speaking to others on the forum, it is actually better to have a drop if running aggressive offsets. Then you can just add some negative camber and be good to go.

Running a 255 on the rear may be a safer bet also. The Michelin PSS is a "fat" tire.

How can I modify the thread title?.. I wanted to switch from saying "aggressive" to to just "19 x 9.5 ET35"

So the 255 performs better than the 265? So going up 1 is just for the wider look?

Other than the wide look your car will sit lower with 265. ive had both and that's what I noticed
