Stupid question -- but I'm gathering that two-pair of rear 359 wheels were used in the setup, and not that the GTS uses a different arrangement from the US ZCP (other than cosmetic.) Am I mistaken?

I'm getting ZCP black wheels with PSS, can't find anything on wether I need spacers or not. My car currently has gunmetal 18's. Anyone?

I presume an M3? Staggered? If yes to both, than no spacers other than for maximum flush.

I will post pictures of the GTS 19x10 wheels with 275-30-19 tires all around shortly.

I have track pictures as well as standstill pictures so you guys can get the idea.

I no longer have these wheels on the car as it now has a custom set of wheels (first to do this, which I think you guys/girls will all love)

Stay tuned.

I do prefer the esthetics of the car with spacers. I would just rather not have them on for 2 reasons. I only do OEM and there's just more on the car to go wrong

Spacers do not yield to any issues if they are a high quality product and installed correctly. They are often used on many race cars. Many factory cars come with spacers (M3 GTS, Porsche GT3 which has wheel spacers as a factory option, 991 Porsche 911 and etc.)

Do you know what spacers GTS uses?

Did you ever get the 275/35 to work in the front?

Looking forward to seeing 275/30's as well. I am hoping to do a square set up, but really prefer the less stretched look of the 275's over the 265's on those wheels.

Not sure if the 275/35/19 would fit as I'm sure the 30 series barely even fit.

The 265/35's most likely squeezed in there because they were a bit stretched

275/35/19 will absolutely not fit in the front. They are too tall. 275/30/19 is a far better option. Note that they will require negative camber and correct offsets to fit. This is not a plug and play fitment.

Stock:

F: 245/35-19
diameter: 654.1 mm

R: 265/35-19
diameter: 668.1 mm

The rear tires are .55" ~ 1/2" taller than the front. (2%).

This new combo:

F: 265/35-19
diameter: 668.1 mm

R: 275/35-19
diameter: 675.1 mm

The rear tires are now .27" ~ 1/4" taller than the front (1%). The new larger 265's raise the front by ~1/2", and the rear by ~1/4".

If you run "square" with 275/35-19's all around, you are raising the front of the car by 21mm (~8/10") over stock. Not sure how that would look with a stock suspension, but you'd lose any rake created by the tire size difference.

If you can run a 275/30-19 (647.6 mm diameter) in the front, since it's 6.5mm shorter than stock, you'll have a steeper rake due to the 27.5 mm difference in diameter front to rear. Not sure if this *might* cause the traction control to sense an issue. For example, on a corvette, if you get the f/r tire sizes much out of the stock f/r ratio, the car will think it's on ice (slipping) due to the larger difference in front v. rear tire speed. What happens is it will slightly increase the throttle to compensate.

I like what the OP has done, though the black wheels make it harder to judge how it really looks.

Feel free to check my math, I could be off.
