What tires? 315f/335r

I am currently working a project on a wide body E46 M with 335r-315f/20r-19f/35 preferable. These are going on 11" and 12" rims. I thought you guys may have a little more info on wide tires over here vice .... e46fanatics or something of that nature. Please let me know what you guys would go with as I am having issues with finding matching tires sets.

I will never use the car in rain and I would like a tread that looks and handles aggressively. I am not afraid of going with a race tire.

Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

Got ya. But those are the tire widths that I am looking for. The rim manufacture already told me that those sizes would work.

Looks like Michelin PS2s run in something close to that size. I know that's not the most aggressive tire, but still quite good @ 220 treadwear.

19x11 with 315/25/19
20x12 with 335/25/20

Pirelli P-Zeros also come in 305/30/19 and 325/25/20 but are a size down in widths, but the front sidewall is a better size. It's a tradeoffs since they perform similar and have the same treadwear.

Will this even fit regardless of offset?

I'm confused. You know the wheel sizes and tire widths that you want. What do you need help with?

LOL. I don't think you guys are reading this thread before posting. This is a modified E46M. Modified tire sizes. And seeing how the E9x cars have wider tires, it seems this would be a better place to post. But I give up.

The widest tires to date on a non-widebody E9X m3 is on Martin's car.... which was a set of 315's in the rear. That required some fender work as well. Most of the people here max out at 295. You might have a better time asking Porsche/Vette/GTR/exotics forum as I know they go up to 375.

Ok. All I am doing is asking for recommendations on tires. I just want them in those sizes. I don't really care what people have fit on their cars. So like NT01, R888, T1R, blah, blah, blah but something in those sizes. So if you have something you really like or have liked that comes in those sizes please let me know.

I was merely replying to what you said - people don't read your thread. It's safe to say majority of the members here have zero experience with what you're asking. If we look for tires within our own width spectrum, do you really expect us to have a recommendation for your desired width? You're not just asking for what's good, you want to know what's good and is available in your sizes.
