Tires for zcp wheels

Hi. I\'m nearing ordering an e92 coupe and have searched high and low for a thread about what tires will work. I\'m looking for sizes using the hankook v12\'s. I wouldn\'t mind even the stock e46 setup for tires if they would fit (255 and 225). 275/35/19 and 245/35/19 seem to be the most popular (cost wise not bad either) does this have any effect on the speedo etc? People have been happy with this? I wouldnt want any rubbing/spacers/etc. Thanks for your help with my simpleton questions.

Recommend you stick with 20mm stagger on the same profile (2x5/35R19, for example) to keep stability control (DSC) from kicking in more frequently. It works off of wheel speed sensors and when you change the rolling diameter of the wheels it cuts in more.

Yes, 275 will be taller than 265 but the difference is miniscule. Either get stock (245/265) or if not available plus 10mm (255/275) which I know they have in the Ventus V12 Evo Hankook tire that you're talking about.

Continental ExtremeContact DW's are also good riding street tires. Just drove another M3 Sedan on 19 ZCP's and it rides really well with the Conti's.

Smurf! Thanks buddy, that's just what I was looking for. I wouldn't mind keeping the stock sizes at all but there are very few companies that make that 265 size and I have liked the hankooks on my 19" e46 m3 rims. 275 and 255 sound like the way to go then. The 275's I know fit no problem, but do the 255's rub on the front? 10mm doesn't seem like much but I thought I read on this forum that 255's rub? That may not have been on zcp cars though. Thanks so much for your help.

255/275 F does not rub on stock height assuming stock profile (255/40R18, 255/35R19).
