Opinion on size

I have ordered a set of 18X10 Apex wheels for street/track use on an E92 M3. I have had good experience with the Yoko AD08, and Iíve heard nothing but good things about the RE-11. Problem is, I was planning on using 275/35, and neither tire is offered in that size, but both are available in 265/35. The tread width of the ADO8 in 265 is actually larger some others in 275. Iím not concerned with the small difference in width, but it will also be just bit smaller in OD, which will not improve the appearance. If anyone has used this size, I would appreciate your opinion (and a picture would be great!).

Rim width range for 265/35R18 is 9.0-10.5" so you would be fine doing 265/35R18 on 18x10. AD08 has 285/30 and 295/30, but I wouldn't advise those up front.

I'd run 265/35/18 pilot sport cups or 285/35/18 hankook rs3s or the ad08s.

run those square and you should have no issues, should feel great.
