Yes, with the RS3's 4 across vertical is a piece of cake. It also allows rearward visability when placed on the seats instead of folding seats.

i would imagine it is a struggle 4 nt01s barely fit in the e90 and i was surprised they did.

Full tread NT01s...they do pretty good on wet pavement. So long as they are new, I wouldn't even really bother with rain tires. But once they get to close to slicks I'd probably switch.

just think they overmatch my suspension and brakes. my tires will be capable of more than my brakes can deliver which could result in some scary moments if i am developing more speed and needing to bleed it off. will have to work up to limits slowly. just feel my set up now is rather balance as far as suspension, tire and brake set up. if i change one i need to change all. or thats what i tell my wife.

sort of. i do think matching these components evenly is a good idea so one doesnt far outshine the other. 60% chance of rain tomorrow. stupid weather.

They will fit flat if they are slightly staggered. I used to have a 335i and believe the interior is similar. What size tires are those? Mine are 275/35-18 square.

275/40-17's and 255/40-17's. Perhaps the slight stagger with the 255's made a difference but it didn't seem all that tight, honestly.

That must be it. I think my square setup requires a little more room.
