It rubs at full lock but it's not doing much damage. I would still go down a profile to 235/35 on the fronts. But the rims and tyre combo have transformed the handling of the car. It turns in a lot sharper than on the standard 18 inch run flats. 437Ms are also a lot lighter, you can really notice the difference.

Here they are but pics don't do this setup justice. Its like these wheels where made for this car. The 235/40/19s with 265/35/19s in rear are a absolute perfect fit and no rubbing at all.

Will try to post some better pics. this is right after install with dirty tires.

Thanks for the feedback. I am waiting for my GC to arrive in May, and will swap the 704M out for the 437M right away. The 437M is coming with MPSS 245/35/19 and 265/35/19. Will see if there's any rubbing at full lock then.

I'm surprised it's rubbing with 235/40/19, I've seen guys in the forums having the same tire size and haven't reported rubbing.

So I ended up changing my front tire to 235/40/19 just because of the gap difference from front and back.. The tire size made it appear as if the car had a slight rake, so it was an illusion and I couldn't live with it. So far no rubbing but then again my car isn't an xDrive.

Current setup 235/40/19 and 265/35/19

Could I ask what tire you ended up choosing for your set up. I also have the Dinan Springs and want to go this route. Thanks in advance.

H&R's now fitted - no rubbing with the OEM 437m and 245/35 and 265/35 MPSS which if i'm honest I was secretly worried about! The lowering has also helped to tuck the front wheels into the arches nicely.

Hey guys, I just found a mint set of the 437m wheels from a 2017 m4. Comes with brand new rubber and I'm wondering if the stock tire 255 fronts and 275 rears would rub on a x drive 440i gran coupe. Any info would help.

I don't see the attraction to the M4 OEM rims, they just don't fit..

I got the M4 knock off rims from GTS and the offsets fit perfectly for a cost of roughly 1000 for the set.

Why do the OEM route?

My tire sizes are 245 and 275

No, 255/35 & 275/35 will not work with xDrive - rolling diameter needs to be within 1% front to rear. This combo exceeds that. 235/40 & 265/35 would work.

My tire sizes are 245 and 275
They do fit - as evidenced on many threads (including this one!)

OEM is also superior due to the fact that the OEM 437m are forged and the concave is deeper than the replica's.

I am running a 245/35 and 265/35 combo without any issues whatsoever and my car is lowered.

Anyone have feedback on whether fitment on an f31 touring is the same as f30/f32?

Thinking 235/40/19 and 265/35/19 on the oem 437m.

Thanks!

As as seen above, my F31 is sat on OEM 437m with 245/35 & 265/35 MPSS.

Sheesh. I went through the first 7 pages of thread and didnt see anything so I posted my question. Maybe I should have gone the whole way to the 9th page haha.

Thanks so much! It looks badass!

It looks like I would have to stick with 335/40 and 265/35 as the car is xdrive. But good to know it looks sensational on the touring!

Hi, first post! Can someone please explain the constraints between a xDrive vs non with regards to tire fitment?

I'm in the process of deciding between a 2015 428i M Sport or 2014 435i xDrive M Sport with the single goal of switching to the 437m oem wheels. And unlike many here I actually do like a wider aggressive width and higher profile (don't like the look of low profile tires on these, personally), esp on the rears and so don't care if there's a little bit of rubber extending beyond the fenders but I don't want rub on the inside (full lock's ok though). Would love to run 275/35/19 on the rears.

Also, I'm seeing several 437M sets that do not include the tpms sensors. I'm assuming I'll be able to just use whatever is on the existing wheels of whichever car I purchase?

Thanks in advance!
