My Ride: Stock 2008 535i sport
Default New wheels/tires, rubbing inside tire.

Stock 2008 535i sport. Just upgraded to stock OEM m style wheels 172. Went 255/40/19 front 285/35/19 rear.. It rubs only in the front when turning left, and only on the passanger side. Can I ride it out? Or will it start to cause any serious issues? I'll post some pictures shortly. Thanks for any help.

Can't figure out how to post multiple pictures on one post.

The same way you posted the first one. Just add to the list.


To answer your question, a tire rubbing is never a good thing. Will spacers solve the problem?

stock sizes are 245/35R19 and 275/30R19. I think you went a little too big on your front tire. Tire rubbing is never a good thing.

I'm not sure if spacers will help? Trying to get that advice.
The rubbing seems to be mostly gone, unless doing a sharp turn.
Weird it's only doing it on the passanger side as well.
