Non-staggered tires are popular for the track, but you better use some caution if you do as the 1 series sometimes lacks stability on the rear end when not using DSC.
Thanks, John. I'm fairly set on my configuration. I'm going to go with 18x8 Apex Aero 7 wheels with 225/40-18 Michelin Pilot Super Sports all around. I can't imagine that combo won't do the job with regards to handling, ride quality and weight savings. Also, I always leave DSC on (no track driving...yet).
