Mein Auto: 2013 640i Coupe
Wheel clearance from Chasis arm..

Well, took delivery of my gorgeous 640i coupe, and went strait to my tire outfit, where a set of michellin supersports and a set of Avant garde rims where waiting. After the wheels where put on, I noted a very close clearance from the tires to the chasis arm; I'm talking about 1/4 of an inch clearance space. The tires do not rub, and the car rides smoothly (better than with the 1 inch smaller diameter oem run flats). My rim diameters are 19 x 9 up front, and 19 x 10 on the rear; offsets of 35 front and 38 back. Fully understand that the whell/tire does not move once the screws are tighten, so my questions are:

!. If this OK?
2. Im I going to have rubbing with tire rollover during taking tight curves (the bottom rubber is the only thing that moves, not the top of the tire rubber)?
3. Any specific thing I should be looking for?

Mind you, the car rides like a dream...
Many thanks in advance for the knowledge.
