Wow. Thats a badass looking car. Yes I agree with some, I wouldnt do that to my m3 , but nonetheless , I like it. I like it a lot. The wheels look awesome. Of course i would have thm in 10.5 as I am not a big fan of stretched tires but that doesnt matter. If you wanted to track it or something all you need is your stockers with normal sized tires so I dont see the reason for any fuss.

OP....there will always be haters and they will make comments concerning how you have your ///M set up. I am not the type to go for the stance look on ///M's but after seeing your pic I have posted that your ride looked good... I have a different path for my ///M and it's okay to be different as long as you don't trash your ride, which you obviously haven't.

Keep your ///M looking good as it does and have fun with it

I may have to revoke my harsh comment about stretched tires. Although not my forte, your car looks great.

If your tires have the proper air pressure I don't see why you wouldn't be able to go 80MPH on the freeway, however I'd probably recommend driving at lower speeds considering that all the freeways around Southern California have much lower speed limits.

Your car looks good by the way.

I keep the rears at 53psi and they seem to be okay so far! Yes the freeways are the worst I almost hit a foot deep pothole on my way home last night!

Whoa! 53PSI seems a bit high. What's the max PSI for your tires?

And you should report the pothole so the city you were passing through can repair it.

Whoa, that seems like very very high tire pressure..... Are you wearing the centers of the tire out quickly?

Ummmm?

I'll just say it's nice to have some cushion between the road and your car...tires with a nice cushy feel, like my 205/55/16s with 31-32 in the front...35-7 in the rear.

If you have to run over recommended pressure by such a high margin to keep the tire on the wheel, something is not good.

You sure it won't stay beaded at a lower pressure?

Well, he never technically said it was in West Covina, so it could have been anywhere.

Having driven through West Covina many times though, I imagine that even the surrounding areas would be suspect to potholes too.
