E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Mein Auto: 2008 650I
Can I put 255-35r 19 rf on rear instead of 275

A friend of mine offered me two 255-35r-19 run flats for my 2008 65o I convertible,and is trying to convince me I can use these tires on the rear instead of 275. Would it work to use 255 on rear?

It would not work as the cornering ability of the car would be compromised since the 255s are narrower.

Stick with the 275/35R19 tires for the rears.

Dont do it, it'll look funky and the wheel sensors will not calibrate
