Default Re: e46 M3 Tire Sizing Thread

What tire size should I go for ? I am on stock setup 19's and future will be koni with dinan/eibach's. I also have 18 square which I am planning to use for winters if I plan on driving it in snow (never seen snow yet).

I do not track the car.

Any help is appreciated.

On my stock 19's Style 67 I have 285/30R19 and 245/35R19

Circumferences are 80.8 and 80.9 respectively. A little more stagger but no DSC issues when running the 275 rear.

Has anyone tried a 265/35/18 or 255/40/18 street tire on 10.5 at rear?
I found some meaty Bridgestone pics of 255/40/18 on a 10 and it looks fine, no stretch.

Any concerns running 255/35/19 on stock 19x8s in the front. I have a spare set of rear tires with 90% tread that I thought I could use before buying all 4 new tires when my current rears are ready to replace.

255s on an 8 rim is a lot of pinch, check the tyre manufactures recommended size for your wheel width.

Not really very pinched. 8.5" min is recommended. A tire with soft sidewalls might feel vague on turn in. A tire with stiff sidewalls will be less effected. I run 265/35-18 BS RE-71R on 8.5" wheels and they look OK and feel plenty solid.
