19x8.5 w/ +33mm offset and 255/35 square setup?

Hey there,

I've got a 2013 335i xdrive with eibach prokits/koni yellows suspension. I've been running my 19x8.5 +33mm Rohanas with 245/35 square setup for a couple of years with no issues, but am looking to go to 255/35 tires in the future to help take care of some of the fender gap that still remains and for a little more grip.

Anyone have experience with that? I know a lot of people say that 245s are as wide as you can go up front, but I think 255s may work, especially with the pro-kits on xdrive cars only dropping similar to stock RWD M-Sports.

Thanks

Yes you can fit 255/35 on an 8.5 but they might bulge a bit since the tire is much wider than the wheel. Either way it would work, but if you go 255 I'd recommend a 9-9.5 in wheel so it looks better

Thanks for the link. I think I was most concerned about the rubbing at the front between the shocks and inside part of the tire, so with my two extra mm to the outside I should be good. Especially since I plan getting Michelin PS4s. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure the front tires will stick out a few mm past the fender.

Here's a couple of pics. Notice my neighbor across the way too, lol
