Looks great. I'm hoping I get get the same results. My 275's and 295's have been sitting in my garage for a month now, waiting patiently for my HRE wheels to ship from Dinan. (19 x 9.5" f and 19 x 10.0" r.)
Tirerack is great. 2 hours after I placed my order, I got a phone call from them. Their system must have flagged the tire size as not compatible with the M3 (understandable) so he wanted to check with me before they shipped. I told him yes, that's what I want, have wider wheels coming, they are supposed to fit, etc. He said, cool, enjoy. Less than 48 hours later, the magic brown truck dropped them off. That's customer service.
I will withold judgement on Dinan's customer service for now.

I'm very curious about this setup for my E90, but also a tad worried about the rears.

I just can't understand why 285/30 still isn't out.

Because that was the recommended tire size to prevent rubbing under any lowering, however I am going to use 265 front when this set wears out It has been a great comparison to my OEM though, and damn these hold up so much better

There is no doubt that PSS' are amazing tires but I am shocked by your traction problems! My M3 with the ESS VT2-625 SC kit had no traction issues in 3rd with 265/40-18 Pirelli winter tires or 295/30-19 Yoko summers. Maybe BMW slipped the 4.4L GTS engine into yours

Nah....they wouldn't make that mistake . Maybe my tires were cooked from a few track days but my car seemed to be searching for traction during any good launch. Keep in mind this wasn't LC but it also wasn't cruising with the CEO in the car. I also maintain the correct tire pressure since I daily my car. A lower pressure would result in more grip but at the cost of fuel economy in daily driving. All I can say is the grip is amazing........Phil

Looks good but personally I think that the 295 PSS is too wide for a 10" rim. The rear tire has a muffin top or donut syndrome IMHO. Looks like tire is slowly consuming the rim. That being said 285/30 is the sublime size for the rear. I'm still waiting for 285 Michelin PSS's to be released.

Yeah I thought of that prior to going this route. But it's a lot better than the stretch you get from the factory. I've already noticed that it's not as pronounced when you start to break the tires in. All and all, I wouldn't trade the grip ....................Phil

People are talking a lot about Tirerack on this thread. I've shopped at Tirerack for years, and the prices and sales support have always been phenomenal. Still, as a place that many enthusiasts go, I wish their website would include non-OEM tire fitment options. It seems that for almost all cars, all they list is the OEM tire sizes. We know what the OEM sizes are and we know they fit. We want info on the other sizes and what wheels they will fit on, and whether or not you will need spacers, etc, etc.

Come on tirerack. Please step up to the plate !!!!

I just bought the M5 reps from **********s (8.5" ET 15 fronts and 10" ET 20 rear). I have them paired with 245/35/19 and 275/30/19. No rubbing. Pics are in a thread in the wheels section.

275/30 19 will fit up front if you run 19x10 rear zcp wheels in the front as well. Here is my car running rear 19x10 wheels with 275/30 tires on all four corners. No spacers, stock suspension, no rubbing.

Assuming everything on the E90 is the same up front, you can run 275/30s on the standard ZCP front wheel (19x9) on an E92 as well: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...09#post9642509
