Default Rear tire size recommendations for ZCP wheels

I need new rear tires i was wondering what size would be the best to go with. What is the max size you can go I was thinking of going to 275 or 285 but just wondering what everyone is using.

Thanks Will

From the Turner site looks like 285.

E46 M3, Z4 M Competition Package Wheel Set
Part #: M3COMPWHEELS
Applications: 2001 - 2006 (E46, Z4)
These Original BMW wheels are identical in appearance to the M3 CSL wheels. Sizes are 19” x 9.5” rear with a 27mm offset and 19” x 8” for the front with a 47mm offset. These are the exact same sizes and offsets as the optional 19" wheels so tire sizing is EASY (235-245/35/19 front and 275-285/30/19 rear). These weigh in at only 24LBS each for the front, 25.5 for the rear!

245/35-19 front & 275/30-19 rear is most common for ZCP wheels

you can run 285/30 no problem since the offset is not as aggressive as the other wheels.
pm me I have a set or Pirelli pzeros
