Gary, Pls comment on M3 18s

I notice that your site provides optional fitments for 19s & 20s, but only list the stock 225/45 & 255/40 for 18s. Do you not recommend oversized 18s & if not why? Thanks.

I'm sorry, I don't auite understand your question. If you're asking if you can go wider on your stock 18" wheels, the answer is yes. You can use 245/40R18 up front and 275/35R18 rear. This is a pretty common upgrade and works just fine on the stock wheels.

Hope that is the info you were looking for.

Thanks Gary. I asked because if you "search for tires by vehicle", 245/40s & 275/35s are not an option that is listed for a '02 M3 Cab w/ 18s. Thanks again.
