What tire size ?

currently im running 245/40 r20 front

275/35 rear...

i was thinking of going 285/30 or 285/35 rear. The reason i was thinking about getting 285/30 or 35 is coz my tire is inside the fender( if you get what i mean) its not on a straight line with the fender, now i want it either on straight line or a lil out of the fender

anyone any ideas ? suggestions ?

if you look in my sig, you can notice how my tires are inside the fender.

edit:::: dont want spacers, thnx.

You don't need to change tires for that....just get spacers like these http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E66-750...heels/Spacers/

Wider tires aren't going to move your wheels farther out. Do you really want a tire bulging out over the rim? To do it right, you'll need wider wheels with the proper offset along with the wider tires.
