Tire recommendations for 20" wheels on M-sport 335i

I'm looking for tire recommendations for the following set of wheels on an f30 335i with stock M-sport suspension. I'd like to avoid any rubbing and camber issues, if possible.

Front: 20x8.5 offset 35
Rear 20x9.5 offset 37

These sizes have the most selection on tirerack, but seem a bit aggressive:

Front: 245/40/20
Rear: 275/35/20

I'd love to see a profile, if someone has a similar setup.

Thanks

What is the offset of those wheels? Also, what suspension?

Thanks. Any rubbing issues? I'm on stock m-sport suspension, so I think I'll be ok.

On full lockout the front rubs a tad bit on the wheel liner, but that's it

I have 245/35R20 on 8.5" wheels. Thats already stepped up a notch (245/30R20 is OEM) and I would never go to a 40 profile cause it would definetely rub!

Is that on stock suspension? What do you run on the rears?

I'm starting to wonder if 19's and higher profile tires would look better with stock m-sport suspension.

Stock M Adaptive. Trust me, I would be able to lower it moderately and not have any problem. But going any taller would give me issues, check out my thread http://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=849595

Thanks for the link. This is the look I am going for. Looks lowered due to filling out the wheel well. Do you know how the M adaptive ride height compares to the standard M-sport? I really like the stance of your car.

Thanks, and no problem! Im pretty sure they are both the same, 10 mm lower than stock non-M-Sport.

They look sweet, I just worry how the ride and hold up on pot holes?

My wife wants me to get some 20s but, I hesitate due to the crappy roads we live near.

Yes, those offsets are too aggressive for that wide of a wheel front and back

like he said, a bit too aggresive. I think 9" front and 10" rear with the "right" offsets is the limit.



My wheels are flush, so all of that extra (1 inch) will stick out. And Im pretty sure you will touch the liner when turning
