I have a stock ZCP set-up and today I drove my buddy's car that has lightweight 18's with 265/285 rubber. Grip was better and ride was better. My vote is for a nice set of light 18's.

I have 20's and car is not rough for everyday driving. Sometimes these guys that complain make me ? there age.

Cars are coming with 20's stock these days so how bad could it really be?

BTW Iam also located in DE and if you would like to see what it feels like let me know.

^^ I’m a believer. Noticeable difference with better turn-in & more stable/planted feel. Improvement in handling & ride & doesn't lose traction nearly as easy. DCT no longer intervenes where it used to w/19"s....all business.

I am seriously thinking about getting these:

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?p=11948862

The right look, the right size, the right weight, and the right price.

I'm thinking:

front: 18x9.5 ET 22 with 265/35/18 Michelin Pilot SS
rear: 18x10.5 ET 27 with 285/35/18 Michelin Pilot SS

This set-up should rock !!!!!
