Sorry it could some time to answer. I went for the stock tire sizes since I am using the stock 19" wheels. You can put wider tires on them, but I didn't because of the reason mentioned above in this thread.

No Falken RT615?

I have just purchased the M3 last fall so I haven't used these on this car. I previously had used these on a 5-series, and based on what I have discovered they look like they are going to fit.

I'll be running a square setup with Nitto NT01 275/35/18 on a 9.5" wide wheel all around. Never ran these tires before but I've heard many positive things about them from some other track junkies. Best part is that they're dirt cheap at $250 a piece and supposedly wear better than most other R-compounds out there. We shall see. I'll report back after the season's first event in less than a month.

I'm interested in how this works - that's exactly the setup I have for this year.

Does it fit on a car with a regular suspension and on-rolled fenders?
I'm thinking of buying 275/35/18 on TMR Motorsports wheels of 18x9.5.
My E92 is stock and I want to keep it like this. Here in Canada, I have access to a deal on Toyo RA1 that I can't refuse on this car if I can get a confirmation that they will fit on my car without modification to the suspension and fenders.

Thanks for your help, Vince

I don't know yet - they're not even mounted on rims at this point. I am convinced they'll be fine based on experience with 265's and measurements, but that's not the same as "been there, done that". Has someone else tried them?

When are you planing on putting your wheels on to test the clearance?

As soon as possible, but my day job has me pinned down for now. Probably around mid-April.
