Alufelgen Winter setup part deux

This is a follow up to my previous posting regarding the Alufelgen SF-71 winter setup i was contemplating about.

Originally, i had ordered the front wheel in 19x8.5 +35 but decided last minute to change to a 19x8.5 +15 instead. Last season i had been running the OEM 313 rims and had to run spacers front/rear to clear front brakes and push out the rear a bit more as the offsets on the 313 are not M friendly. I wanted to run a proper setup w/o spacers this year, and here are the results.


Front: 19x8.5 et15 245/35/19 Pirelli Sottozero 270 Series II
Rear: 19x9.5 et20 265/35/19 Pirelli Sottozero 270 Series II

I am getting rubbing on the louvered vent panel in front of the wheel. It only happens when parking and at full lock. I'm not sure if going to a 235/35/19 would help, but if any of you have any suggestions i'd really appreciate it.

I'd really like to thank Matt @ Alufelgen wheels for helping with all the logistics from start to finish. Really solid service and would order from them again!
