Looking for experienced advise......
I run slicks, but I agree that the pressures for the E92 are higher than other cars I've ran. It's a heavy car. Part of the problem is managing outside tire wear unless you have 3.5+ camber too. I run 31-32 cold and try to keep it at high 30's (bleed down after session). I'd run a little less if my outsides could take it, but at 2.5 camber it eats them. Listen to the Hoosier techs.

I ran 26 cold on my E36, and mid 30's hot, but it weighed 1000lb less and had more camber.
