The car came with the Sports Package already which is like .. 17 incher's. I haven't been able to find any fitment pages on these forums .. or any other sites .. so I'm just going by sord of what the Sports Package was .. and just upping the #'s.

Say I don't lower the car. Will I run into problems with this setup?

19x8.5 (front)
19x10 (rear)
235/35/19 tires (front)
265/30/19 tires (rear)

thanks!

Might struggle with 10" rears.....

Lowering the car won't make matters easier, it will reduce the lock available and risk rubbing. You'll have to have the arches rolled.

<span style='color:blue'>&quot;So my BM makes me a flash bastard? Then I guess you're just keeping it real from the seat of your nova?&quot;</span>

<span style='color:gray'>&quot;...and the home of the brave..... is bravey 130bhp from a 7 litre engine? 100bhp/litre or don't bother building it!&quot;</span>

<span style='color:red'>&quot;Aaahh the UK; where every road is jammed, under construction, poorly maintained and unfairly policed, at least we don't get over-taxed for it........ HA HA HA!&quot;</span>

Well, I don't plan on lowering the car. I think the car's already low as it is. If 10"s are a problem .. u think 9" or 9.5" would be fine? Is there anyone on the forums with 19"s????

I'm about to get 19" for my 325CI, I agree 10 might be much. I'm going 8.0 frt and 9.0 rr.

Going with Monet, Gothic's:
Check out the wheels

In addition to the rim width, you need to be careful about the offset. I've been checking on the same setup and here's what I've found to be the largest practical setup:

19 X 8.5 ET 40 FRONT
19 X 9.5 ET 45 REAR

I have an e46 alpina b3 with breyton magics on. Size 9.5 on front
and 10" on the rear. Tyres are 235x40 and 265x35. The alpina comes lowered
as standard and even after having both rear arches heavily rolled they still catch under load but only just. BUT THEY LOOK WICKED!! They are tight but they're
ok... go for it!!!
