    Sorry to disagree. Can go +1 to 245-35-19 Fronts and 275-30-19 rears. 255's in front will run your fenders big time, and same issue with your rears, unless you get the fenders rolled. Overalll diameter driven not by width (245, 255, 275, etc), but by combo of relative depth and wheel diameter: 275-35-18 = 285-30-19 assuming you're not installing big brake kit (wheels need room for larger rotors and calipers).

    tire size

    Hi
    Does anybody know if 255/30/19 front and 285/35/19 in the rear will fit on a E39 M5, I have a 2002 mod.
    I have a set of 19" Bryton Imagine wheels. I do not like the look of the front tyres (245/30/19)on the front rim. The rear is ok, but I was thinking to go up one size on all four corners if it will fit.
    Thought someone had tried it.
