The Typical 437M Question

I have to ask for myself. This forum seems to put out a ton of info that gives multiple answers and it feels like a never ending search for answers.

I am considering a set of OEM 437M with the stock 255 fronts and 275 rears. Does anyone run this on a stock M Sport suspension? I have seen some say yes it is no issue, others say it'll rub and poke. I know 235/265 seems to be the way a lot go but the specific set I am looking at has practically brand new PSS.

I am sorry to bring this question up once again but I would love if someone is or has run the stock tire sizes on a stock M Sport F30. All input is welcome and appreciated!

I run the stock M3/4 255/275 on my 2017 F30 M sport with zero rubbing.

That with 437M or another wheel?

F36 won’t rub stock suspension. I ran 255 f and 275 tears (35s on both I think) when I had oem 437m.

the reason you get so many different answers is because people are running a variety of different suspension setups which can make all the difference in wheels/tires fitting, poking, and/or rubbing

Does anyone know if the 437m wheels are lighter than the normal F30 wheel sets? I am considering aftermarket which are supposed to be much lighter, but wondering maybe the 437m's are light, too?

Exactly why I asked for myself about stock M Sport suspension.

Yes, they are significantly lighter. Around 19lb. Just google it and it will pop up with a thread here.

Do you have any poke? Sorry for all the questions, should have asked earlier. If you have any pics of your setup I'd appreciate it! Tried to look through your posts but couldn't find anything.

I'm not lowered so it's on the edge of poke. It looks exactly the same as all of the pictures of everyone else running this rim.

I'm running stock suspension with my 437m. I've had no rubbing issues and have not replaced tires, running 255 and 275.

Quick question, what psi is everyone running? I have not seen this question asked...

Any help is appreciated
