Once and for all - Has anyone run 275/30r19 up front on stock wheels?

I have read through numerous threads about people asking what the max width that can be run. Quite a few of them bring up 275/30r19 being a good diameter match for the stock tires, but no one has confirmed that they have run them. It appears to be that this has just remained a good idea that no one has tried. I'm thinking about taking the leap, but would feel much more comfortable if I knew others had tried it before me. My back up is running a 255/35 eventhough it will still rub just a bit.

I am putting on Michelin Pilot SS by the way.

I wanted to hear this from someone who tried it on a 1M too. All I could manage was finding some guys who tried exactly 275/30 19front and 295/30 19rear combo in their E9X M3s. They reported zero issues with stock suspension and wheels.

I would love to know this as well. Love the stock wheels, but want wider tires.

Would like to do 275F/295R if it fits with no rubbing up front.

Seems like there are a lot of people in the same boat as me. I wonder if Discount Tire would take them back if I had rubbing issues in their parking lot.....

Wouldn't hurt to ask them first.

you could always ask on the gt3 owners club for somebody's worn out tires and run 275 front and 295 rear to see if they rub before you buy new?
ive got 255 35 19 fronts and 275 35 19 on the rear ready to go on next and hope theyre ok..
i'd like to go wider on the rear if poss so ill keep an eye on this thread..

cheers jamie

Me too but I'm lowered on H&R sport springs so that may cause some issues in my case.

Too wide for oem wheels IMO

Get ready for sloppier cornering and steering feel

Stretch is good for cornering and steering feel.

I went 275 35 PSS on the back recently and will go 255 35 PSS on front this spring. I will upgrade to the redesigned fender liner first, hopefully that will save me from rubbing in the front.

The stock REAR wheel and tire will fit on the front with minimal rubbing.

I'm on h&r springs and run 265/35 pss up front and 295/30 dunlops in the back on stock wheels. I get a rub maybe once a week in the back when on a freeway with construction and hit a joint in the road, just a brush on the liner but I would say that it doesn't rub at all in the back really. The front I get the same brush on rough freeway joints where construction is happening and they haven't smoothed them out yet, it is slightly more pronounced in the front due to the larger diameter tire and I do get a bit of rubbing in parking lots from the front, it is primarily when reversing and in this setting it is exactly where the updated liners dip towards the radiator/oil cooler so I hope these will completely alleviate it, I plan to request them at my next oil change, in the meantime it's totally live able as I just avoid full lock reverse and have no issues. When I let someone else drive that doesn't know when it will start rubbing it is pronounced in parking lot maneuvers.

My rubbing is caused by the larger diameter tire up front, I think it's a .5 increase over stock, so compare outside diameter and if you're very close to stock, closer than I by about .25 I think you'd be perfect with the new wheel liners as they will mitigate some of the potential to rub, and especially the potential to rub due to tire width vs diameter that I experience, 275 will stick out quite a bit though and may vastly accelerate rock chipping of the rear arches, I have been watching for this with the 265s up front.
Hope that helps.
