OK Wheels are ordered, now for tyres!

Ok, 360 Forged Mesh 8 ordered.

Matte centres, reverse with black gloss lip.

9"x 20" Fronts
10.5"x 20" Rears

Deal done and dusted.

Now for tyres, so far with limited supply in Australia I have come up with the following:-

Fronts 255/30/20 Pirelli PZero Nero
Rears 295/25/20 Pirelli PZero Nero

I don't want to go any wider on the fronts because of handling & tracking.

I believe Mich's, Continental, Khumo (I think there called that) have tyres available but I am lead to believe the tyre max weight rating is lower than the oem tyres that are on the M3 now and that you can go up but not down?

i have advan rs wheels 19x9.0" in the front and 19x10" in the rear.

tires that i have 245/35 and 275/30.... did this way because i might drop the car and i dont want to have any rubbing issues.

i am using Pzero Neros too... apparently some say PS2s are better but i am using the car more for the street and i got Pzero Neros at a lower price so i am willing to give up some performance.

Goodyear do their Eagle F1s in 20"

sizes are

245/30x20, 255/30x20, 295/30x20 and 285/25x20. I personally rate their rubber.

Falken and Toyo also make tyres in the above sizes and they are also getting very good reviews.

Toyo, that is a tire I would love to know more about. Tire Rack doesn't carry them so I can't get any reviews/ratings on them from customers. I love my PS2s but love the way the Toyo tread looks on their wide tires, plus they are much cheaper than Mich and if they are good, would consider.

Anyone hear anything specific both good and bad about Toyo?

I've ran T1R's on my 19 inch volks. I have no problems with them. They don't wear too fast, but I don't feel they have the outright grip of the PS2's. They were quiet, soaked up bumps well, and seemed to communicate the limits of grip well.

All in all, they were a good tire for the price. I would buy them again. Hope this helps.

T1-Rs are great tires. They are not on pair with PS2s in the dry. But good enough for daily driving. Not to mention they haul ass in rain.

Hi, Thanks for the tyre info, the trouble I am having with some of these tyres is there Max Weight Loading is less than the allowed standard shown on the tyre sticker on the door sill of the M3.

I am allowed to go up in spec for the max weight loading but not down, also we are only allowed to go up 15% in wheel size and 10% in tyre diameter from the door sticker.

19" to 20" and a tyre of 295x25x20", the problem is max weight loading of some of these tyres is less the oem 19" thats fitted.

I would look into the Nitto Invos. We have tested them on a couple cars and we are extremely please. I do not think you can go wrong with that tire..

You read my mind. I was about to say the exact same thing.
