RE-11 on 1m

I noticed a few guys are running RE-11 on M3's.

Anyone running 255/35/19 and 285/35/19 RE-11 on 1m?

I asked this question a while back...

http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showt...errerid=124463

I haven't pulled the trigger yet. I'm trying to make it a few more months before I buy tires. If you beat me to it, let me know how it works out for you. If I go first, I put up some pics and a review of the fitment.

I'm pretty sure the fronts will be ok...maybe a little rubbing on the fender liners which is no big deal. The rears I was more worried about since Bridgestone doesn't offer a 285/30. The 285/35 will be a decent amount taller than stock in addition to the added width.

Yeah, a e92 M3 few guys have the rears 285/35/19 on lowered vehicles so it might be ok but can't say for sure on 1M

i think the decision made based on :

1. RE11 is cheaper than PSS at China due to PSS not officially imported. But in US Re11 is more expensive at tire and rack?

2. PSS lasts longer than RE11 but less grip. Because PSS only have 275 but Re11 has 285.

3. My 1M is occasional usage. My 1M is running Cobb stage2+FMIC. So grip is more important than long last.

My expereiences with Re11 is great! They hold tightly. They are not slippy even almost full throttle.

add some pictures for your reference...
