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.

nice stance, is the susp stock or lowered? where does it rub because i plan on putting the Eibach springs do you think that'll make em rub worse?

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.

thats exactly what i was lookin for and i agree that neg. chamber look makes your car look like one of the rice rocket buget lowerin kits

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!

what kind of ratio are you guy running on your tires?? Right now I have 245/40/18's (25.7") all around and to keep that size i would need a 285/30/18 (24.7"), but Im thinking of going with the 285/35/18 (25.8") or even 285/40/18 (26.9") if it fits. The reason i want this is it will improve the ride a bit and im sure it will help out the straight line traction too. I was figureing that these would probably fit since the factory size 245/45/18 (26.7") is just about the same height.

i also thought of the 275/35/18 (25.5") and the 275/40/18 (26.7")

I know I need to just buy some damn tires
