michelin pss 235 or 245 on 8.5" vs invo

Please help

I have square 235 invos but looking for more grip so looking to replace with Michelin pss; everywhere I read pas are supposed to be wider, how much wider are the pss vs invos, can I fit 245s pss on et35 vmr 718s?

Thanks in advance

Wrong forum. This is the M3 section.

Tires are tires, what's the difference? Wanted to know how wide pss tires are in comparison to invos.

OK, michelins are wider. Can you fit a 245 on an 8.5" wheel? Yes. Nobody here (unless you happen to find someone who has had an e90) knows if your et35 wheels or your 245's will fit your e90. You will have much better luck on the e90 forum.... Why waste your time asking M3 guys about this?

No comparison at all. I had a FBO/meth + coil over + LSD n54 335 that I used on the track and as a daily driver. The Invos were absolutely horrible. PSS were so much better in every category. Even with stuff I didn't really care about...like going WOT off the line. I have a VBox and could barely do 0-60 in 4.3 seconds with the Invos. After a month with the PSS I was logging 3.5 seconds.

PSS FTW. Skip the Invos if you want a good tire.
