Because of 10mm? Seriously?

You can tune for that much with tire pressures.

Head to the track section and see what you find. What was the MM difference stock in your car? What do you think happens when you jump to a 40mm difference

It came with 225/255. Increasing them both 10mm would net 235/265 but the rear tires would be shorter than the fronts so I chose 275 on the rear.

I added 10mm more stagger than what it came with from the factory.

It will understeer worse than stock. I had the exact setup you are considering
19s with 235/275. I didn't realize how bad it was until I changed tire brand and went to 245 in the front.

Track talk is not necessary fellow BMW brothers. I drive my car to work, school, and with my son where ever he needs to go. Let's just all get along. No BMW on BMW crime.

What is your deal? You have contributed NOTHING to this thread. I have experience with the EXACT setup he wants to run, down to the size and brand/type of tire.

I simply stated that there are better tires for the same price and I gave an example and the reasons why. I interpret "best tire" as the best all around performer in various situations. I don't think the V12 is that tire. Sorry just don't. It is nothing personal, which you seem incapable of understanding.

There is a reason so many people are recommending something other than the Hankook.
