    275/35/18 on 18x9 M Parallels fit or not?

    I've heard conflicting stories as to whether a 275/35/18 tire will fit the rear of an e34 with factory 18x9 M parellel wheels. I want to clarify that I have the sedan and not the touring. I don't know if the wheel well/suspension spacing is different between the two.

    All seem to agree 265/35/18 will work fine. I want to go with the original 245/40/18 on the front so the 275s would be a better diameter match to level out the car.

    I'm really hoping I can get away with the 275s and not have to roll the inner fender!

    I've had 285/35 18's on my 18x9 Alpina wheels for the last six months. They would only rub if I hit a bump in the middle of a very sharp turn. I even auto-x'ed a few times with no problems.

    No problem...I ran 275's with my factory M paralles with no rubbing. Aftermarket wheels with additional offset may have a problem.

    I have used 275/35 rear tires on factory E34 MParallel wheels with no rubbing problems.
