Message: Hi all,

I am Finlay making a decision on the rim setup. I will be getting a set of ACS Type II rims in 17x8.5 with 13mm offset all around. I know this offset is a bit low for E30 m3, but im set on that. What I do need to know is what is the correct tire size I need to run. The car is lowered an inch. Fenders are some what rolled to my knowledge. I understand that the size for the back should be 245/40/17 but the front I am not sure about. Any input is appreciated. Pictures, experiences as well...

Thanks!!
