255/35/19 and 275/35/19 MP4S on ZCP?

Hello,

Found major damage on my front right 245/35/19 Hankook Ventus Evo v12 tires so I want to change my entire setup to higher quality Michelin Pilot Sport 4S all around. Right now I'm running 245 up front and 265 rear hankook on my ZCP rims. Would you guys advise moving up 10mm all around? 90% street 10% track.

Current setup uses spacers not sure the size bought the car like that.

Thoughts?

Thanks

Fits just fine, probably what 75% of people on this website are running, lol.

Recently went from PSS 245/265 to PS4S 255/275. No issues at all, like Dparm says what plenty folks do. I have no spacers though.

I was wondering big time before I changed, didn't want to lose any nimbleness. Keep in mind I changed after Winter hence haven't driven previous PSS 265/245 for a while, but can't say I lost any. The PS4S certainly feels softer/more rubbery though, could be cause they are new but never the less not a bad thing.
The PS4S are quite round/ugly if you ask me but the grip is what matters hey...

Not really. Ride quality might be a tad softer, and the steering response might be a little bit more mushy since there's more sidewall to flex. For a DD, I don't think you'll notice.

255/275 PS4S is a very popular setup. 90% of the users seem happy with it and re-up/recommend the setup. But a few people have gone back to 245/265. The smaller sizes should feel slightly more nimble, and maybe a more accessible grip limit makes them more fun on the street. But it's hard to get feedback comparing the same tires, with similar tread left, in different sizes. Comparing 255/275 PS4S to 245/265 worn out anything else doesn't do much good for us.

Can any of you post photos of 255/275 PS4S, 359M, E90, no spacers? Wondering how much the tire helps with the offset or if spacers still look "needed."

I think if you're looking to fill the fender gap, spacers are inevitable.

I've been running PSS 255/35 and 275/35 on my ZCPs since I got the car. I don't know anything else on this car. I'm happy with the setup and road feel but I'm due for new tires and I'm wondering if it's worth trying out going back to stock specs 245/265? Price difference seems negligible.

I've seen some older threads discuss but figured I'd ask here since this is most recent.

It won’t be a big difference. 245/265 will feel marginally livelier (more feedback with less sidewall) with marginally lower limits of grip (narrower).

Got PS4S 255/35/R19 and 275 rears on the way. Will update with 1st impressions once broken in.

Thanks for the help!

Im still deciding. Likely gonna go PS4 as well. Seems to be a negligible price difference with the PSS. Keep us updated how they feel!

Garage List
2013 BMW M3  [4.50]
2005 BMW X5 3.0i  [5.00]
Just placed my order for PS4S 255/35/R19 and 275/35/19 from Tire Rack. Total was $1,163.96. Called the dealership and they said its about $150 to unmount/balance/mount for all 4.

Can't wait! I bought the car in September 2015 and it had some worn Pirelli Pzeros with 265 rear, 245 front. I haven't measured the tread lately, but the rears look absolutely bald.
