A friend brings his 335i to the track, and he is very fast. (I have an M3, btw). They're both great cars, both very nice at the track or on the road. IMO, they are pretty similar on the track given...

Yes, 255 on the rear.

I only tried the pilot sport ps2's -- and they were slightly better than the re050's, imo.

sway bar opinions?

Anyone compared different sways for an e46 M3 with stock suspension?

My goal is to remove a little understeer, and increase turn-in when at the track, and I don't have the cash right now to...

Find a shop that specializes in alignments. I found that the local tire places couldn't get it right, but the expensive "custom alignment" shop did exactly what I asked for.

I've had both PS2's and RE050A Pole Positions. Both are good, although I believe the handling edge at the track goes to the PS2's. PS2's did not last as long, though.

I run 245/40/18 on the front...

For 265, does anyone have an opinion on 9 vs. 9.5" wheels -- I assume 9.5" rims...

Anything special to fit 265 fronts?

Do I need to do anything special to fit 265's in the front (other than buy wider wheels)?

I'm thinking about getting some track wheels, and I like running non-staggered to reduce understeer...

Best shops that I have heard of in Bay Area are Cavallino's in Palo Alto (can see the sign from 101, I think it's between Embarcadero and University on the 101 access road) and "The Works Auto Body"...
