Can't answer that one. Got to rely on the info posted by the owner (Belgian forum fellow Dave72). He also posted that, for track days only with his 1M, he now got himself a set replicas featuring used Michelin tires with the following specs: 245/35R19 front (normal) and - fasten your seatbealt - 305/30R19 (!).

I totally agree with you, Oz. 19" is already on the limit for the 1M pocket rocket. 20" is to my eyes 1" too much + probably requires a special budget for tires (not to mention how it compromises ride comfort outside the track + fender liners health). To each his own.
