Dry performance is good for a winter tire, snow performance is ok not as good as blizzak but pretty good. If you're looking to maintain the ZCP style on winter wheels look into Apex, or HRE flow form too also vorsteiner has nice wheels. I'm pretty sure turner still sells them

Good idea. Which you think look closer to zcp? Apex Arc 8 or the APEX EC-7? And they have the added benifit that I can them in 18 inch wheels.

I had pondered that a couple years ago when wheel shopping. I think ec7 is closer to ZCPs than arc 8 for sure and closer to zcp than the ps7 too. They should save you money over the BBS

Yes sir. I'm already looking to find a used ec-7 on here. I think the Anthracite (gun metal) color will look nice with my jet black e90! I've seen a couple pictures. Might look better than silver (and makes things different than the silver zcp).

Got pics? By the way, the ps7 and ec7 look exactly the same to me. What's the difference? By the way, happy the new year! Can't wait for the spring to finally go to local meets and meet some good people!

Where the spokes meet the lip is different and I think the profiles are a lil different too. I don't think I have any pics I deleted my photobucket account that site is awful. Happy new year to you too

No pic. Car looked too clean. Like it wasn't driven in the snow. probably just had it out for a ride since the weather was nice. I had mine out today. First time since mid November.

You got snow tires or just your regular summer tires?

Are blizzaks L-32 good tires? Know whether 225/40/19 and 245/40/19s would fit zcp for the winter?

Idk about the lm 32 I had lm 60 and they were good so I'd guess they are just as good if they replaced the 60s. I'm no tire expert but that sounds like a big stretch to me. My pirellis are stock sizes

So, what sizes are your running? wait, you're running winter tires right? I am looking for the ideal set up for winter tires sizes on zcp wheels.

I was behind a Black E92 in Wakefield on Saturday with a carbon fiber trunk.
Exhaust sounded nice!
