Widest tires on e46 M3

For OEM 19" M3 rims, Anyone know what the pushing limit is? this is without fender rolling and without rubbing.

I think this setup is the limit:

285/30R19
245/30R19

Just wondering if anyone has seen or heard anything on 295 or 305 ?

Not sure, but Dinan used to run 295s in the back IIRC.

And 245/35 is run all day on the front, but the OEM 19s are only 8" up front, so yeah I'd stick with a 235 at most.

PS. You will have to roll the rears no matter what if you go up in size, especially to 285.

I believe the widest for m3 without rolling fenders is 275. As for the sedan, it's 255. 265 for coupes. Do keep in mind some brands are wider than others, so you may still rub a little...
