would you ever consider putting all season tires on the e92 if you live in a northeastern state?

how would 245/35/19 & 275/35/19 fit?

Took the car to AutoClub Speedway for the weekend, and these tires were kick ass. I was flogging it pretty hard and it was hot out there. The tires never got greasy like the PS2's did on a cold day at Willow Springs. I was thinking of the Hankook V12's next, but someone had some chunking with them at the track and they did OK on TireRack's comparo against much more expensive rubber.

I also think they're harsher, but tolerable. I also think they're a little quieter too. The PS3 don't seem to give any better dry grip on that diagram someone put up a couple months ago. I'd be interested in if they get greasy when really flogged.

Hey everyone, I'd like a Sessanta size recommendation for my OEM 19s. I have H&R Sport Springs and 18mm front, 15mm rear Macht Schnell spacers. My PS2 rears are in good shape so I'm going to replace just the fronts, thus need a recommendation just for the fronts.

That could be interesting...running different make tyres front to rear can work fine but it can also be a bit of a disaster, at worst the car can be all but undriveable. Unfortunately you won't know till you try.
As for size I would stick to the stock size for the fronts.

Vreds don't come in 245/30-19. Most have run 255/30s, though I don't seen those listed on the Performance Plus website now, only 265/30s.

Sorry, been a while since I've been looking at sizes - you are correct. Looks like 245s are now available in that aspect ratio - were'nt when I got min several months ago. If you are going to stay with stock width wheels I would stay with 245s in front for better steering feel and less tendency to hydroplane than wider sizes. I am running 255 & 275/30s on 1/2" wider wheels.

You got 30's? I thought most everyone from the initial RAC group buy got 35's (in the 255 & 275 sizes).

No, like I said I was not remebering correctly. 35s are the best.

I'm getting Vreds installed on my car today... stock 19" wheels. Going on a road trip to test them out. Will let you know my thoughts. Had to go slightly wider than stock... Will also post photos with the stock wheels. Can't beat the pricing!

Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta size is for stock 18 "

Friday night I blew out my left front Michelin. Didn't see a curb extending from a parking lot entry booth. I probably have 12,000 miles on the tires. Still tread left but makes no sense to spend the money for one new Michelin in light of these beauties everyone is raving about.

Maybe I missed the answer on this thread, and it's okay I apologize. But I seem to think that 255/35/18 and 275/35/18 will fit on the stock wheels and will not cause any rubbing problems.

Am I correct?

Has anyone purchased these in the Cincinnati area? If so any recommendations for retailers? I believe Michael's Tires Plus is a retailer for the brand. I've had good success with it in the past.

Thanks for any responses. To all veterans, Happy Memorial Day and please know your service is appreciated and that I pray every day God blesses you.

Jim

I just bought 255-30-20 and 295-25-20 and love them. For the price you can't go wrong. The handle very well, dry and wet

Mack211 put 255/35/18 275/35/18 Vred's on his car a few months ago. Here's the post: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showpos...&postcount=264.

Several people on the east coast have purchased Vred's from http://www.groupawheels.com/

I odn't have the specs in front of me, but I believe a 40 aspect ratio for the front 255s would be closer to stock.

For those of you who were running spacers 15/12 on stock 19 inch rims/PS2's who are switching to 275 VRed's in the rear, Are you keeping 12mm spacer in rear? If not, what mm spacer are you changing to accommodate 275 tire in rear?

Looks like Vredestein Sessanta size 275/35/19 is out for a few weeks. We are waiting for the shipment to come in in 2.5 weeks and Vredestein USA will get them in 3-4 weeks.

Unless you know some shop with those available and in stock, its a good idea to pre-order them somewhere

I have them installed on my OEM 20" wheels on my X5. I have 10k miles on them thus far and they are still as quiet as the day I bought them. Tread life appears to be halfway and the wet traction and dry traction have been nothing short of satisfying. For the price I paid, and for the attractive tread pattern, using them again in the future is a no-brainer.
