Anyone want to trade 275 for 285 S03s?

My brand new unmounted 285/30/19 tires for your brand new unmounted 275/30/19 tires. I'll just do straight trade if you are in SoCal... if I have to ship then you pay shipping

Don't you have 285/30/19 rears on your car?

Are they too wide or rubbing with your current setup?

yea, because of the system my car is too low and I rub on the passenger side, so that's why I want 275s, but Bridgestone sent me 285s...

I run 285's without too much of a problem right now, but I don't have a nice system as yours in the rear. Do you think I will have a problem once I drop the car? Plus my Cabrio is heavy enough in the rear . I am ordering Bilsteins PSS9's for them. Just haven't had time to think about dropping the car until now. I am on my last set of 275's and have a set of 285's waiting to be mounted when I burn out the 275's. I have tried to order another set of the SO3's and they are on backorder for a long time now. I heard the factory in Japan burned down and they are in short supply.

P.S. Awesome car. One of the first I read about when I decided to switch to BMW from Porsche. I wanted an open top at the time, perhaps due to the fact it was nice outside . I am looking into getting an 01/02 M5 or 02/03 M3 Coupe for show. I miss the competition from years ago.

Take it easy. Let me know if you want to unload them( tires that is ).

Hey man, thanks for the compliments! Really appreciate it. I'm not sure if you would have a problem with 285s. I have read about people who run 285s and are lowered and don't rub, but unfortunately I'm not one of them. I don't have the patience or time to figure out how to get them to work, so I'd just rather get 275s.

You used to show your cars? What did you have? And were you interested in my tires? Let me know, thanks!

I was into the scene back in the mid 90's. I am 34 - feel like am old since I have been around the auto scene for a long time and then dropped out to be a student and become a grown up I will always mod cars but don't get crazy like I used to.

I showed several Honda Accords for Sound Competition and show cars - won some events and spent way too much time sitting around my friends audio shop and too much money on mods. Remember when MOMO IDEA's were big? I don't know how old you are, but I had 18's back in 1994 and it was crazy. People started to copy many of my friends cars and mine, so I changed it all the time. I got sponsered by MOMO, PPI, Kicker, Phoenix Gold, AMPP of America, etc. It appears you are have some sponsers? I still enjoy it, but now OEM is easier to deal with. I will always drop my cars and get wheels. I have 545R's now in 19's and looked at the DPE's but decided to stick with what I have. I want to get an additional M3 coupe or an M5.

I am interested in the tires, but I know shipping would be a hassle. I am trying to get another set or just switch tire companies and get Toyo T1's. I don't like Pirelli's. I want another set in case I get a hole in the tire and since SO3's are on back order, I don't want to be stuck putting my OEM"s back on, since they need new tires as well. I am sending my HRE's back now to HRE to widen the lips 1 inch in front or 1/2 inch and 1 inch in rear. I have the lips. So I am putting my tires on the OEM 19's for now. I am putting the 245/35/19 and 285/30/19 on them. A little wider than they (BMW ) wants you to put on, but I know it works

Let me know about the tires if you want to ship. PM me on your price.
