I normally run 275-30-19 in the back. Right now I got a free set of 265's and they hold pretty good. Second gear wheel spin but you can stay on it. (LSD though)

you dont need new camber arms, your OEMs are fine, unless you plan to turn the your car into a fulltime track car. Usually everyone just runs the camber plates, no point of getting new camber arms.

Yea, turner is better than the UUC or Rogue RSMs.

thx for your reply, you prob didnt have to roll your fenders with 275s right? wat brand/model 265s you running now? are then 265/35 or 30 at back? also what you run at front? did the 275s spin less? I have the whole rear end of a m3 going in including hpf ti exhaust

99% of the time people will run 30 series sidewall with a 265/275/285/295. No one really runs the 35 series with those widths because it's just way too tall. Sickbimmer has an E46 M3 with the HPF kit. I'm pretty sure Fab's fenders were rolled last I saw the car.

Get some sticky tires in 256 or 275 (ie. Michelin PS2s) on there and you're set. I'd focus more on actual road grip than width... but hey, it's your car bro!

hey

hey I noticed the ps2s got good reviews to 4.5/5 but the nitto nt05s were getting 5/5 on almost all sites... Im most likely going to run 245/35/19 for front, 275/30/19 for rear, those ps2s look like the sidewalls wouldnt rub as much as the nittos... Ill have to bring my car to my local tire shop and see what they think...
