I know this is late but depending on your offset 255"s will not fit, the tire will rub on the bottom spring plate...235's should fit perfectly.

255/30-22 is too big - 4.9% larger outer diameter compared to stock. You are supposed to stay within 3% max of the stock diameter.

A small spacer, say 10mm, may help since the spring perch has more clearance as you move away from the strut.

You can't really compare your setup to Trompa401 since he is running coilovers with a completely different spring/shock setup compared to stock.

What size are your wheels (width). A 235/30-22 is 3.1% larger than stock and should fit if the wheel is not too wide for 235s. Rears should be 285/25-22 to match the diameter of the 235/30-22 fronts.
Straight lines are for fast cars...turns are for fast drivers
'04 M3 - track
'06 650i Cab - daily driver
'02 Highlander - kid hauler
'01 330Ci - winter beater
