We are running RE11s on all of our vehicles and will have a mounted square 275s setup on an M3 very shortly. It is an amazing tire.

I have not seen/tried a better tire to date. The performance is just over the top compared to the PS2 and other Extreme Performance tires. Do not expect them to last too long though but again they are priced very reasonably. Give them a try you won't regret it.

I`ll be posting pictures shortly.

I am giving these ones a shot. My P40 wheels from HRE should be done in about another week, and these are the tires I choose. I will be running 255/35/19 and 295/30/19

I wanted to run the new RE-11s as I had the RE01-Rs on my 335I, but they don't make the 295/30/19 rear size in the RE-11's yet.

I personally think that the side walls are waay too soft on the PS2s (part of why they are so light, they don't put a lot of sidewall reinforcement in them)

I really liked the RE-01Rs for that reason, yes they are heavier, but the sidewall is much stiffer and allows for much crisper turn-in and quick response. Same goes for the new RE-11 and the new PZero "Hero"

The only negative thing I have to say about the RE-01Rs is that they tend to get greasy when they are hot and ran hard. I hope they fixed that in the new RE-11s. Otherwise I LOVED my RE-01Rs

IMO, I would gladly take a little more weight, for a stiffer sidewall and crisper handling tire.

BTW, if you do some research on the PZero "Hero" , they are getting stellar reviews, not one single negative thing has been said about them that I have found. Plus they dethroned the PS2 in the latest tests done at Tire Rack
