Depending on the offset, yes it will fit without fender modifications and in my case with lowering.

Has anyone tested how much slower in acceleration 275front and 295rear would be compared to stock sizes?

I'm guessing it will be noticeable.

Doubtful. 18" vs. 20", if the 18" are light and 20" are particularly heavy, will be measurable and probably fairly consistent. I doubt that tire width will be above the noise of the measurement for acceleration. Furthermore, the weight of wider rears will be offset by a bit more traction, given an identical compound and all else "apples to apples".

You might be right but I would love to know for sure, all the same.

This thread is worthless without the width and offset of the wheels you plan on running those tires on.

I got 360 forged split 7 wheels with 305/25ZR20 tires in the rear. I just picked up my M3 today from the port and I have to pick up my tags for the car then drive it back home from Georgia to Texas to put my wheels on so hang in there a min. I will provide picks

So 305s will fit without fender mods? Even with a slight drop?

305's will fit in the rear with a drop and no fender roll at all. Nate@IND had that tire size on his 1st set up with the 360 forged wheels. Now he has a different set up with 285's in the rear with the HRE wheels, but he did have 305's in the rear on dubs!!!

So one could do a 275 up front with a 305 in the rear? That is a ridiculous amount of rubber!
