i'm running F80 513m wheels
18x9, et 29
18x10, et 40 with 18mm spacers

have been using Michelin PS4S
245/40/18
275/35/18


had ordered the same sizes in Continental ECS but the rears went from having a 2 week delivery time to backordered
so looking at diff sizes

245/40/18 + 265/40/18 (stock E90 sizing on 219m wheels which are 1/2 inch skinnier)
255/40/18 + 265/40/18 ???
255/40/18 + 275/40/18 (stock F80 sizing)


what to do?
looking at the photo, i think i can go taller especially in the rear
so leaning toward the 255 + 275 combo

Mini Detail

Got her detailed by a professional for the first time.

How do you know your car is well cared for?

When the detailer calls you less than halfway through the 7 hour quoted time saying it's done cause he ran out of things to do. Wound up only charging me for a basic wash.

Installed POM GTS1 and ARC-8's this week.

Reconsidering whether I should have got a GT4 instead.

Also considering coils now that I went from 19" to 18".

My wife got me an OEM cover for the M3 since I can't get in our garage now that I am lowered and have the GTS lip.

Need to have the concrete guys come and make the hump a little less steep.

Can you use wood planks to build a small rise ramp?

That sucks. I bought a Bridgit ramp to get mine over the gutter and into my driveway at our new house and it's worked great. Have to measure to be sure it'll work as intended and it's way more $$ than you'd think you'd have to spend on a chunk of rubber but it has been great so far. Thought I'd throw that out in case you or anyone else in your situation find it helpful.

Looking good!

What is making you want the GT4 vs. GTS1?

Just looks more aggressive. I originally planned on ZCP wheels and got the GTS1 as I thought it would pair with the ZCP better.
