VMR V710 19in with BMW performance suspension?....

My car is completely stock right now (rims/tires coming in today, see below). I have heard great things about BMW's performance suspension, so I'm thinking about installing that. Do you think I will have issues with fitment if my rims/tires specs looks like this:


VMR V710 19in Matte Black

Front rims: Size:19x8.5 ET:45mm
Rear rims: Size:19x9.5 ET:50mm

Tire Package: Yokohama S.drive:

Front: 225/35 R19
Rear: 245/30 R19

The specs are perfect except for the aspect ratio on the rear tire. You will want a 245/35/19 or 255/30/19 depending on what width you are after. With those offsets and tire sizes, you should not rub.

Yep, I'd go 255/30 or 245/35 with all those other variables.

The tires and rims sizes that I listed are what I have now so there's no changing that now. I just wanted to know quite simply if I install the BMW performance suspension will I have issues with rubbing or will everything fit ok?

I have those rims with 255s and Goodyear F1 tires. I just put the suspension on 2 months ago and have no problems. I think you'll like it a lot.

thanks, I'm chomping at the bit right now but will have to wait another month, as the rims/tires are getting installed tomorrow and set me back a little penny.

Based on what I'd get out of (and pay for) the bmw perf. suspension, is it worth it to consider other possibilities, and if so, what would they be?

I'm assuming this is $2k for the suspension and then w/e installation is. Is it worth it buying parts separately?
