OEM is Fr 225/40R18 Rr 255/35R18

You can go Fr 235/40R18 Rr 265/35R18 but some tires rub in the back depending on the tire/wheel offset. Keep in mind that will raise your car about .25"

No, off E90post.com. Seemed like there were a few people with that issue.

The Toyo R888 and Federal RS are both on different levels. One is a street/track tire and one is simply just DOT R-Compound. If you have not yet had much experience with HPD, then I would suggest using a street tire to learn more about your car and driving capabilities. R-Compounds will cover up most mistakes with new drivers.

I think those came off an E9X M3. Keep in mind, those came off of a car that is about 400-500lbs heavier.

That's a stupid post, with no background information this doesn't mean anything.
