still trying to figure out my options for center caps.

im a bit unsure on tires. i liked the rs3's i had on the car with my old wheels, but they tramlined a lot and were a little rough on the street.

thinking of DW in 265/35 and 295/35 for street and minor track use?
Like to see the car with 295's. I was told 305's could fit TCIII's w/o issue. I went w/PSS for the street & couldn't be happier.

yea right now im struggling between DW in 295 and S04 in 285s....

I had PSS before which I liked, but didnt really think were much better than the DW. They dont really compare to a real extreme performance tire to me bc of the soft sidewall, and they rode rougher than other max performance tires.

Part of me wants to try the s04, but the DW is lighter, probably rides softer, and is a bit wider. I am worried about the steering being too loose and floaty with the DWs...

What size PSS are you running? Any pics?

Id love to go 305, but dont think they could fit without significant rubbing with stock camber.

i did end up going with advans because of the availability of the silver finish. plus i liked the less aggressive rear offset so I can run a 295 tire next and not have major rubbing issues.

i would have gone with the volks if I could get a te37 like the ones in the pic, but i could only get the sl in pressed graphite...


But with the advans, i got a great deal from Cal at Sonic MS

thanks to everyone for your help

on a side note, i may be letting go of my current tires...265/35 and 285/35 rs3s....fronts are brand new basically and rears are 1/3rd worn

We carry the Racing Sciences center cap adapters that will work on the Te37Sl and the Advan TCIII. It allows you to use a center cap on the TC III and there are a few different center cap options available as well.

Here is my thread on the Adapters and reversible center caps from Racing Sciences: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=646744. Feel free to shoot me a PM if you have any questions.

Love it. Great fitment!

I went with s04 in 265/35 ad 285/35.

Wanted to go 295/35 but not enough good tire choices...

One of the best things about the TCIII is the amount of clearance they have for larger BBK. My Alcon rotors are 384mm, and these wheels give me better clearance than my Volks. Great for street driving since there is less chance for rocks to get caught between the caliper and the wheel. I'm running PSS in 275/35/18 all around with the 9.5" wide wheels.

I put TE37's on yesterday and while right now I like the TE37's, I don't know if I'll be able to part with the TCIII"s. Even my wife is telling me to hold onto them.

They're both excellent wheels. I'm planning on keeping my TE37SL as well.
