wheel and tyre size help

Recommended Posts

hi. I have a tyre issue. I have a 530m sport. I currently have 20 mk motorsport alloys running on 245 35 9j fronts and 275 30 10.5j rear.. the fronts sits flush with rim and rear has a slight stretch. 

 

this is how she sets at the minute .

now this lad is low . I'm not wanting that. he's one 225 30 and 245 35 rear which I'm my opinion is nuts. far to much stretch... 

 

I would go to a 235 35 but would like to stay was wide as possible on backs

Easy; don’t go that low

 

Itll be a shitty ride, it’ll handle like crap and you’ll buckle/crack the alloys in no time at all IMO

 

Don’t be a slave to stance, this is the UK with its pot hole ridden roads, not United States of billiard table like roads!

Each to their own I guess, but I can't figure stretched tyres at all. Are there handling advantages to such a setup or is it just about looking 'cool'? BMW must spend a shedload of money in determining the best size of tyre for the  wheels they fit. I can understand why people might go up a bit in terms of size, but are tyres designed to be stretched in this way?

the rears I never fitted. I bought a wheel and tyre package from bmwautosport..

 

they put the 275 with stretch and put the fronts flush. they could have fitted a rear 285 so flush from and rear and front, or 275 with the fronts to match..

 

I wanna lower the car but keep tyre wall same size (not elastic bands) just need the  fronts to stretch same as rear so on steering lock the tyre doesn't hit the arch liner
