I've got 295's on CCW 505's in 19 x 10's that only rub on a very hard dip. I'll go back with 285's though.

Stock suspension. Lowered it will rub. Parker had CCW wheels with 295's (lowered) and his rubbed. You can run a lot of negative camber to help it but the rear tires will bow in at the top and I don't think it looks very good.
I'm actually running a little more positive camber to get the tire to sit a little straighter.

The BMWs have negative camber from the factory, I really don't mind how it looks.

What about up front is anybody running a 265 or a 275??? just wondering i think it might make the car look a little more agressive, and maybe hold better too

I put the 275s up front just to see if they would work and it bottomed out pretty easy and hit the lip. and on hard turning, it might have been hitting something.

I would stick with a 255 in the front and definitely go 285-295 in the rear!
