Zcp w 265/30 & 295/30 ad08s

Hello guys,

Are any e92's running this setup? I've searched and found nothing. Hopefully someone has a pic with lowered suspension.

Thanks!

I literally just read someone who was talking about this and said since ad08 run wider you might get very slight rubbing

don't know for the 265s but I run 255s and 295s AD08s on my ZCPs with 5mm spacers at the front and Eibach springs and it looks and ride perfect for my taste!

Thats has got to be one of the best lookinf clean M3's i've seen. Maybe the refelctions are helping the paint to "pop". That is gun metal grey?

it's a trial and error system. i think you'll be fine with that setup most of the time but if you use the ad08 it might create some slight rubbing.

I've got 265/35 and 295/30 for ZCP's, but as soon as I bought them I ended up ordering some HRE's. All is for sale too!!

Looks good, Alex. Pretty sure I'm going to try some 295's on my ZCP!

Gents, speaking of 295s, I have a set of 18*10 25ET wrapped with Toyo RA1s 275/18s for track duty.

I was thinking of installing 295s (R888) at the back. I see that they fit with 9.5 width. Will it be okay with 18*10 25ET at the back? Or will I need spacers?

TIA

Lutfy

This car looks amazing! Love the black on grey color combo--always have. Looks so mean.

Hi I'm getting supercharged in december and was wondering what tire/size i should get? i have the stock ZCP wheel setup on my m3, which is 19x10 in the rear and 19x9 in the front. the problem is I'm lowered on the KW sleeve kit which is about 1-1.2 inches all around. I was thinking of going 295/30/19 for the rear and maybe a 265 or 275 for the front. What do you recommend?? i currently have spacers on my car and will remove them with the new tires. As of tires my options are Nitto (NTO5), Michelin (PSS), Falken
(RT-615K), Bridgestone (RE-11), Advan (AD08), and Toyo (R1R). Which would you recommend? Thank you for you response and it is much appreciated!
