Specs for 19inch wheel options

Hi,
Question to the ppl already taken delivery. Do you know the tire specification for the e92 M3? I am looking for the front and rear tire specs with the 19inch options.

The Michelin site is showing showing something like
225/40ZR19 93Y front
255/35ZR19 96Y Rear

Question to North America guys, r u planning to keep factory tires or is it better to go for tires like TOYO or FALKEN etc>?

Thanks

would have answered your question and this should be moved to the wheels section...

Tires are 245/35 ZR19 front, 265/35 ZR19 rear. The Michelin site might state the specs of the E46 M3 tires.

Michelin developed a special version of their PSII for the new M3, so I don't know if changing to another mfr makes sense...


Best regards, south

I'm just curious... why would you even consider changing the bespoke Michelin PS2 to a Toyo or Falken?

Why change tires

Replacement cost or to have a specialized track or Winter tire is the about the only reason I can see. On the E46 the Michelin PS2s seem to be worth the extra from all I've experienced and read.
