Advice needed please

Post by nick66 » Fri May 18, 2018 1:43 pm

Hi, does anyone know if i would be ok to fit these straight onto a 2006 2.5si sport without encountering any rubbing etc
CSL reps
8.5x19 ET44 fronts with 235/35/19 and 9.5x19 ET27 rears with 265/35/19 OEM offsets.

Thanks

I think the fronts will be ok but think i read somewhere that the rear et shouldn't be less than 30 on a 9.5 wheel?

The rears on an E85 Alpina are 265/35/19, 9.5J and ET50, if that helps ?

The rear 9.5 et 27 with a 265 35 19 tyre will most likely rub :( imagine your current Oe rears with a 36mm spacer behind :cry:
Its not impossible with different tyres but they will look very "pokey" at the back

Thanks both for the replies. Think I'll give them a swerve and look for some others. Saved me making an expensive mistake, many thanks for the excellent advice
