Very interested in a set of the ARC-8s for my E92 M3.

Will I need to modify the car (rolled fenders, cut liners, negative camber) to make 275/35 tires work on track without rubbing?

The car is stock and I plan to keep it that way for now (after a few events) then install a sleeve over kit later.

We've had plenty of customers using the 18x10" ET25 fitment with 275/35/18 high performance summer tires (ie. Hankook R-S3's and Dunlop DZII's) without any issues at stock ride height and lowering springs or coilovers, as long as their ride height is not extremely low. You would not need to roll fenders or cut liners or add negative camber for the fitment to work, though having more negative camber is always beneficial for performance driving on these cars.

I'm one...18x10" Apex ARC-8 with 275/35 NT-01s all around. Perfect fit, no need for spacers (thankfully!), no rubbing at all.

Thanks for sharing! That's good to know that the NT-01 fits without issues, which is an R-compound tire, much wider than a regular street tire.
