Anybody Have 275/295 PS4S on Their ZCP?

I currently have a 275/295 PSS setup on my E92 ZCP (stock suspension), and it's almost time to order a new set. I've been reading that PS4S tires have a slightly wider shoulder than PSS, even though Tire Rack lists both with the same 11.9" section width and the PS4S having an 11" tread width versus 11.5" for the PSS. The PSS had a very slight rubbing on the rear fenders at near-full compression when they were new, so I don't think any wider will fit. Curious whether anybody has PS4S tires in these sizes on their ZCP (E90 or E92) so I know whether they'll fit. Thanks!

I know some runs 275/30 front 295/30 rear but I really dont like the look and wouldnt run 295 on 10'' wheels. What is the reason you dont wanna run 255/35 F 275/35 R? Cheaper and safer plus I see that you live in NY and some roads are horrible there. I guess 255/275 option is better,safer and cheaper at least you'll have some meat.. Answering your last question is they do fit based on reading some guys post here..

I actually like the more flush/squared 275/295 look. From pictures the 255/275 setup still looks slightly stretched to me (even with PS4S tires), though I haven't seen many in person. Plus, to get the tire more flush with the fenders with the latter I'd need to run spacers. That said, I'd consider going to 255/275 if I can't confirm whether a 275/295 PS4S config will fit first.

I run 295/30 Ps4s on the rear zcp wheels and zcp suspension and they do not rub for me.

I run 255/35 up front so can't speak to the 275 fitment but my size rubs very slightly on full wheel lock. Not enough to cause any damage or make me care about it. Would be curious if the 275/30 Ps4s ends up rubbing.

Thanks, that's good to hear. Can you post a couple pics? Interested to see whether there's a discernible difference in the shoulder when mounted on a ZCP wheel.

I'm pretty confident 275/30 PS4S would fit up front, I had no rubbing with that size in PSS. Just the rears were close.

What about going 265/35/19 f and 285/35/19 r?

Not sure if that will work. I have a e92 zcp with stock suspension and stock zcp wheels, it's running the stock setup for tires but was thinking of going a little meatier. All I've seen is people running the 255/275 route.

I'm pretty confident neither of those sizes will fit well. There's numerous reports of 265/35 rubbing the liners and a few of 285/35 doing the same.

I actually got confirmation from mgmarsh39 in the "ZCP Love" thread that 295/30 PS4S will fit with no rubbing, which is what I was looking for. He has 255/35 up front, but 275/30 should fit fine in PS4S.

Also here for some input. I'm on an E90, stock ZCP suspension and wheels.

I'm having major traction issues with my OEM size PS4S... Also looking to maximize sizes and it looks like 255/35 up front is best. As for the rear, looks like 275/35 or 295/30 are closest to OEM overall diameter... 285/35 and 285/30 are both over 2% different in size...

So, where's my best option??? Also, I'm running a 15mm spacer up front and 12mm in the rear... Will these have to go?

Thanks for the input...
