The ultimate wheel/tire set up for the M3 is BBS FI with 255/295 Michelin PSS.
Stock ZCP's I will take it at face value that they will rub (I don't have them so I do not know). I am on stock suspension and have WedsSport SA55M rims coming tomorrow with Hankook Ventus V12 Evo tires (which are more rounded and not square shouldered) and I was assured that it would not rub. The research I have done indicates the same. The wheels are 9.5 in front with et24 and 10.5 in rear with et24

As far as weight goes....I'll be reducing weight by 6lbs per wheel with WedsSports. Realizing the 295 Hankook rubber will most likely weigh a bit more than the 265 Michelin OEM's.
