Some good news on the retrofit front. The wheels may not fit properly without spacers (bummer they look pretty sweet in the dark gray) but If you look closely at the photos of the mineral gray F80 on 18's, the tires on that car are Michelin PSS in 255/40 and 275/40-18. The 255/40 has been available since the PSS launch. The 275/40 size will be available stateside as a replacement tire sometime next year. Great size for street cars, paired with either the 275/35 front or the 255/40.

Yep, and the 19" wheels are wrapped with 255/35R19 & 275/35R19 -- what most of us already run.

I've been wanting this size since the PSS came out, loved it in the PS2 but couldn't justify going with the ps2 again when it's inferior and more costly just for the size, so I went with the boring old oe sizes with my first set of PSS. No longer! Now I can screw up the car in new and exciting ways!

Fronts would fit fine without spacers, rears would need a 12-15mm spacer to look and handle right though they could probably fit on the car without hitting anything with a 5mm
