New shoes - finally square

Cross-posted from the E9X forums, but I thought you gents might be interested as well. More shots to come this weekend when I've a proper photographer around.




For the curious:
19x9.5 ET24 on 265/35R19 Contintental DW (square)
0mm_F / 15mm_R spacers
WedSport SA-55M
Rubs pretty hard in the front on the aft fender liner. Not terribly worried about having to replace that eventually, though. At 21lb per wheel (46.8lb assembled), it's about 4.5lb savings over OEM per corner.

They're not too bad. They're just a weeeeeeeee bit less grippy than the PSS I had previously, but they're on-par with the PS2 and they're slightly louder than both. But, for $80/tire less I don't much mind.

I'm not entirely sure on the vendor's view of price disclosure, but they did price match a competitor on a portion of it and were exceptionally accommodating so for now I'll avoid discussing it. I will say that they were significantly less than a set of BBS LM's but, on the other hand, I could've easily bought two sets of cast wheels and tires for the same price.

It means that I've finally acquired the famed and glorious "square" wheel setup - all four wheels and tires are the exact same sizes. This tends to reduce understeer.

Unknown. His "garage" has a 335 and a 323.

Those tires are wider, and taller, than stock fronts even for an M3. No surprise they'd rub.

Nonetheless, I'd like to hear what they're on.

I'm thinking of a square setup in the spring for my E90 M3 ZCP.
