    Philosophy behind the choices is strong and lightweight. I am looking for improved performance and comfort with the change. Looks come in last but i do like the look of bigger sidewalls and the oz wheels. I have a white m3 s-touring model for reference...

    Just picked up a set of Enkei EM3s with Firestone Indy 500 tires.. So my question is, does anyone have any experience with these tires? Thanks in advance

    Has anybody done this with stock 18s? I'm curious how it would look on a Snowflake hatch. Dealer damaged my wheels with the tire balancer and I'm contemplating having the wheels powdercoated bronze or gloss black when I replace the tires.

    Ive put 35k on my oem tires and can't find any higher mileage tire for this car. I drive 30k miles a year and don't want to buy a set every year. I've looked on tirerack for 215/45r18 and 225/45r18 and I am not impressed. Am I missing a decent tire?

    Wedssport SA15r 18x8.5 +48 offset plus 3mm rear spacer Thinking about this, and been reading here that the safe offset for 18x8.5 is 45 so there's no rubbing, 40 will rub at the rear a bit with h&r or eibach springs. How about 42? Keeping it on stock height for mean time (no problems even at...

    Barely hit 10k miles and my tires are already on their last leg. I rotated twice since I've owned the car, the wear is even on all 4 tires... I'll be lucky to see 15k miles. Had it measured and it's 4/32. Has anybody else seen this little tire life out of their stock tires?

    I'm looking for the revolutions per mile for the stock 18 inch Dunlops. Tirerack doesn't have that info and Dunlop's site is too dumbed down so it doesn't include that either. I've also seen two very conflicting numbers on other sites. Anyone know?

    I was wondering if anybody has had experience with wheel spacers, and if it's a good idea to make the car look better. Is there any pros and cons to using spacers, like performance wise? I'm not planning on tracking my car at all, I'm basically looking for a clean flush w/ fender look with a...
