Non ZCP M3 w 359M's and GTS sizing

After a long long search I have finally found and purchased a set of OEM ZCP wheels. As much as I like my 219's I have had the car for almost 6 years and I was due for an update.

For anyone who wonders what it is to go from 219's to ZCP wheels w GTS sizing (255/35 & 285/30) here some info:

E90 M3
71k miles
EDC suspension

- Car doesn't feel any slower. Difference between the 18" OEM wheel and ZCP wheel even w larger tires is not noticeable
- Car could sit maybe 1/2 inch lower in front and 1/4 in the back, but overall for "tired" stock suspension it looks great for now
- It drives great! 30 profile in the back does not create too harsh of a ride as some comments have suggested in prior similar threads. It's just perfect for me. Def harder than 18's w stock sized tires, but def better and great for DD and spirited drive duties
- For whatever reason this upsize in tires is hardly noticeable for me when looking at the car. I know sometimes 18's look wider with same tire size than 19's, at least to my eye.

Here is a couple of pics w the new set up:
