Default Wheel fitment question - 19x9.5 et 22 with 265/30/19 on the front

As the title says I would like to run a 19x9.5et 22 with a 265/30/19 on the front the front of my m3. From my research as long as I run 3 degrees of negative camber then I would be OK. Only thing I am concerned with is that I am running KW V2's and am lowered. I know that the V2's run a wider progressive spring. Would this pose an issue with fitment of this wheel and tire with the KW V2's?

Also 3 degrees of negative camber should not relay decrease the life of the tire correct?

-3 won't hurt tires if the toe is neutral or just slightly off zero. Some tires wear better with camber, depends.

Thanks Tyler, I figured as much just wanted to get a second opinion.

Question is now that wheel and tire setup with the KW V2's coilovers?

With et22, I think you should be ok on the inside not rubbing springs, if not, you will have to add spacer and then even more camber or raise height so you dont scrub the outside and fender liner.

Pretty sure I ran 19x9.5+22 with my KW V2’s and did not rub the springs. It’s the +35 you need to worry about.

I did however rub the fender liners on sharp turns w/ 235/35. Ditched the wheels (and eventually the KW’s) as I did not want to run too much camber. That and it stuck out waaay too much for my taste.

Thanks for the response, So you ran 19x9.5+22 with KW V2's with a 235/35/19 and it rubbed the fender liners?

Were you running any negative camber?

Not looking good to run 265/30/19 then.

Itís been a while, but Iím pretty sure I ran the KWís with it. Cleared the springs but not the liners. I ran around -2 camber and that didnít help.

Wow, and that is with a 235/35/19. With a 265/30/19 the fitment I would assume would be worst. Would an extra degree or 1.5 of negative camber help with fitment?

The other posts showed 9.5 with et25 with a 265 would work with 3 degrees of negative camber.

Too many variables to give a true answer to this. Some people say they don’t rub, but they really do on sharp turns. If you live in PA I’m sure there’s a few running the setup you want. I’d go check with them first hand to be sure.

From what I saw in mine, no amount of camber would have helped me clear those fender liners. It rubbed the front part of the liners, so idk why camber would do anything.

I fit a similar package with -2.5* of camber, but you may run into issues with your spring.

Also, I have very similar specs but I use 18" wheels so I can run a 265/35/18 which gives a little more sidewall and makes for a better ride.
