Question Tire Sized for Factory Sport 18's, stock or go wider??

stock 18" sport rims.

The rears are 275/35 18

fronts are 245's

I run full winter tires and rims, so can go as wide as the rims and car will fit.

Or just stick with the stock sizes?

That's sounds like BMW!

Did you replace pads, or pads and rotors?

I NEVER replace rotors until they give me a problem such as warped. So usually its two sets of pads for each set of rotors.
