Putting on some shoes tomorrow, feel free to pitch in
Recently I purchased some nice style 42 reps. Wheels were used on m3 by a guy that had like three BMWs and an audi. Nonetheless wheels are almost brand new out of the box.
Tomorrow I plan to put some tires on them until I get wheels that I love.
So the specs are listed below as well as tire sizes I plan
Fronts 19x8.5 ET38 with 255/40/19
Rears 19x9.5 ET38 with 275/40/19
From what I read on other forums 255/275 on 8.5/9.5 (respectively) will improve grip, somewhat protect wheels (rims) because of width but they also wear out quicker on the outside.
245/265 on same wheels are the opposite with a chance that they might look even better.
Also something was mentioned about pinching the tire with 255+/275+, not sure what was meant by that. And one last thing, it will be fitted on a e46 with m3 spec wheel arches/well.
Maybe someone can pitch in before I shoe the wheels.
