My rear wheels are 18x9.5. My rear tires are Potenza RE760 sport in 265/35/18 size. I used to have Goodyear F1 275/35/18 in the rear but they rub when I have 4 people on board and I hit some depression on the road. I think you will be happier with 265/35/18 in the rear. My front tires are 235/40/18. I used to have 245/40/18. The car drives better with the slightly narrower set of tires that I now have.
I love your wheels. I'm on the fence on whether to buy a new set for my 02 530 sport. My stock wheels are curbed really bad, all 4 of them and I have snow tires on them right now that I don't want to run in the summer. Can you tell me what size you have on the rear, how tall they are in inches and if you used spacers on front or back, and what kind of tire are you using? I'm looking at some m5 reps on ebay and I worried I'll rub in the rear when I load the car for trips. The rears would be 275-35-18 if I buy them. Thanks.
