Ugh... that's too late for me. I'd like to change out my tires before the end of summer.

No, I'm not using spacers. It's a tight fit in back but you should be OK. You might get a little rubbing up front at full lock with the spacers. I am not sure how much impact 15mm would have on the steering angle travel .

Ordered PSS's today for my '11 Comp Pkg M3 Sedan. Used up the Pirelli RFT's in just 19k miles. Droning heavily.

You are correct, my bad, thinking of the other 3 series I owned. Pirelli's are on the M3 now, ~19k miles and VERY noisy. I went with PSS 255 and 275.

Very nice, those PSS should treat you well. 19K miles is actually pretty good for the original tires on the M3.

For those with 20" wheels, I got a response from Michelin that they don't plan on doing a 245/30/20 or 255/30/20 size in the near future however, after some research, I did find out that 265/30/20 is a possibility. I will probably be doing 265/30/20 F and 285/30/20 R when it comes time to replace my Vreds. The 265/30/20 - 285/30/20 combo maintains the OEM 0.5" stagger but the overall diameters are 0.5" larger resulting in some speedo inaccuracy.

Yea I just keep stock sizing. I thought about it, but I kind of like how the stock size tires look on these rims. These do look wider than the Conti's though.

Hey Dustman, I just gotta give ya a
For that mix up. My sales advisor also told Me my M3 will have runflats since there was no spare! I just looked at him funny.

In the last thousand miles; 62700 miles currently, my PSS just completely changed characteristic. It now almost seems to grip as good as my previous PS2s as ooze to my previous complaints of it feeling greasy.

Crazy it took six thousand to get to this point. As I said it feels as good now as the PS2, not certain if any better. But it is quieter! These were 300-500 cheaper so I ain't complaining. I did nothing to affect this change however.

Could be the tread blocks wearing down and squirming less. The PSS are molded at 10/32" instead of 9.5/32" front and 8.5/32" rear in the OE PS2 sizes
