I have a set of 9.5x18 for the front and rear for when my car gets here. I am curious how the front suspension deals with the extra grip of dot-r tires. i.e. will it use the full tread width or just roll over onto the outer half.
I'm running 275/35-18s on the 9.5" rims. (just 3 more weeks to go)
The front needs a lot more camber,which I am unwilling to do as I enjoy the normal street manners of this car so much.The rollover was not bad but the temps were quite a bit warmer at the outside of the tires.On my C5 Corvette I ran 315'/40 -17 all the way round on 11's and that was a great setup.I think the M3 would probally work oK also with a square setup but I do not have the time or money at this point to really start experimenting with different wheel & tire setups.I am moving in less than a week to another house that we have renovating for the last year.
