Front I have 7,5x18 wheel with 205/45 18 but I will buy 215/40 18 not Run on flat.
Rear 8x18 wheel with 225/40/18

In front I have also -2° 10' camber. With this upgrade no more understeer. It's a new car, more and more funny.

I think that use in front more than 215 is not a good idea for handling

Oh yes, use in front more than 215 is a good idea for handling! :headbang:


285mm tires on front, 305mm tires on rear. It makes incredible grip with tires this wide.... it will rip your face off. :biggrin:

Generally you want to use as much tire as you can fit under the fenders (or under your flared fenders, if you have the means or your racing class rules allow you to enlarge them). More more more! Its hard to have too much tire. :smile:

We've managed to stuff a 255mm tire on front (on both 18x9" and 17x9" wheels) and a 305mm tire (18x10" wheel) on the back of an E90, and we hope the E85 can swallow at least a 255 tire up front as well... here's to hoping.

I would like to try and track my 135i, but not too seriously since this would be my daily driver...also I will most likely get the auto since I would be worried about ruining a brand new car while learning manual.

I would be most interested in getting a taste for the track and meeting people really, and maybe driving my car at 90+% so that on the streets I understand its capabilities and limits when Im dribing at 80%

I just took a look at your street and race wheels - I think you've just won a future customer. I'm curious which items of yours will work well on the E82...

Impressive!

We were able to stuff a 265-35-18 on the 18x9" LTW5 on the front of our project 335i, but 305 on a 18x10" for the rear! Nice! :thumbup:
