Urgent tire size help needed
 
Man I am in a bind...after 3 oem 162s crackin I ordered Avant Garde Type M310 Wheels Front 19x8.5/ET-35/Rear Wheels:19x9.5/ET-33. The bimmer now sits on flat tires & my 99 4runner tires are bald so I gotta order from tirerack today.

Need advice wanting best flush look & a tire w/rim protection:
Fonts 235, 245?/30 or 35?

Rear 255, 265, 0r 275?/30 or 35?

Thanks a mill 4 anyone who can opine this weekend!

You won't get anywhere near flush with those offsets. Just stick with 265/30R19 in back and 235/35R19 front.

Wider than flush?

HERE is a handy tool that lets you see how much change there is with various tire/rim/offset sizes.

Plug in the stock 18" specs on the left, and yours on the right, and you can see how much closer/further things are to both the outside of the car and the inside fender liner, along with speed variation, etc etc.

Tires don't get you flush - width and offset of the wheels (or spacers, if you want to go that route) do. Tires might have larger or smaller shoulders, but that impacts more if you'll rub or not.

You simply can't get flush with tires alone. You need offset, width, etc.

Try running 285/30R19s on back with something like 19x9.5 ET 20. That'll probably get you flush but may scrub.

man...I am stuck w/those offests its how modbargains suggested. I do have front spacers o 12mm and rear 20mm so worst case i guess if new wheels not sitting to my liking I could put spacers back on.

Net offset is wheel offset + spacers, so that might get you there. Not really sure what all you can fit on the 335s, though. I've seen mixed results.

The setup that is recommended is the 19x8.5 ET35 with a 235/35/19 up front and the 19x9.5 ET33 with a 265/30/19 in the rear. If you're looking for a more flush look, you can add a 5mm spacer up front and the 10mm spacer in the rear. The spacers that you have will push the wheels out way too far and will not work. If your car is lowered, you will have to roll your rear fenders with the 10mm spacers (which makes your rear offset ET23) to avoid rubbing issues.
