Toyo Proxes Sport VS Bridgestone Potenza RE050A

I looking for tires for my 328dx. I've picked up a set of OEM 437M's and I'm looking for tires. Since my car is an xdrive I have to get 265/35 19 for rears and 235/40 19 for the front from what I have gathered. This combination has been a bit of a challenge. My choices so far is Toyo Proxes Sport and Bridgestone Potenza RE050A (2 weeks wait from my supplier for the rears). Anyone know or have experience with these tires to see which is better? Price point is the same. Thanks

245/35/19, 285/30/19(better if lowererd) or 245/40/19, 275/35/19(if unlowered) are two other size combinations you can consider. If it's too difficult to find something in 235/40, 265/35.

There is a possibility the 245/40 +29 will rub the fenderwell liner ar full lock. Let me check on this.

My plan is to lower on sport springs with dinan bump stopper, Cheers thanks for the recommendation. 245/35/19, 285/30/19 is better option then 235/40, 265/35? and fine with xdrive?

it is not necessarily a better option but another option with more tire categories and choices. the gap becomes bigger with this combo which is why being lowered is preferable. https://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh...&postcount=201

235/40, 265/35 is still the best option to me on oem 437M, however only 6 summer tires are avail on TR in this size combo
