just give me a week and i'll tell you if they are good or not... i've done 265/35/18 on my 335i with no problem... so we'll see what happens with 275/35/18....
They will work for drag purposes, but from a handling, wear and grip perspective using rims that are too narrow may cause you to have less grip, worse handling and higher tyre wear compared with a narrower size of the same tyre that is a correct fitment for the rim.
