Wheel poke- 437m

Evening all.

I finally acquired some genuine 437m paired with 245/35/19 and 265/35/19 tires. I read through hundred of pages that these are the magical non x-drive tires sizes for flush fit. Now that I have fitted them, they do seem a little pokey.

I have absolutely no experience in this field of stance/flush/poke wheel fitment. And so I just wanted to check what people's experience are with ever so slight wheel poke with MOT or coppers.

Does this wheel poke constitute as road legal if only the side wall is showing from above?

My understanding is the tread (the part which contacts the road) needs to be covered, of which I believe which they are. It just happens the side wall isn't covered.

Thanks in advance! Please find attached visuals of the situation.

I have them, same tyre size, I'm lowered on Eibach pros too.

They sit amazing, but your front tyres look like they have lots of stretch and you have the same size tyres as me.

Had these on my F31 for a couple of years before I sold the car on recently. Never had MOT issues, nor any other issues.
IMO car needs to be lowered to pull these wheels off, with as much camber as the standard adjustment allows. I used H&r sports(not supersports) which are excellent on sdrive cars, felt like stock comfort to me, better handling and perfect drop.

If you lower the car they will be less pokey and probably look how you expected them to.

The problem is you have the roller skate look going on because the car isnít lowered.

Aggressive offset rims look much better with a sensible reduction of ride height and it also adds some natural negative camber to bring everything in together.

This.

G50 - remind me - you went with PS4S and you did the same springs as I had and you had no rubbing even with the slightly beefier sidewalls of the PS4S vs PSS?

Yeah ordered same part number that you stated on an old post, and ps4s with no issues. However I always felt mine didn't look quite as low as yours, could just be perception due to your black wheels though.

Barely poke on my F31 335D X-Drive thanks to the H&R lowering springs!

235/40/19 & 265/35/19 if you were wondering!

Within the magical 1%, don't rub, no issues at all..
