Tire Replacements

I've had my 19" BBS LMs for awhile now and its time to replace the REAR tires. Apparently, Toyo doesnt make the T1R's anymore. I really loved the STRETCHED look with 265/30/19 on a 19x10 wheel. What other tires would give me this look? Any suggestions? Pics would help too.

any tire in a 265 is going to stretch the same. cheaper tires usually stretch better if your going for serious stretch such as 205 on a 9.5. for your application just pick what ever you want. and itll work.

you should also stick to the same tyres all round as BMW's are tyre sensitive

This is not true. Some tires have stiffer sidewalls or use harder rubber compounds which make them less friendly to aggressive tire stretch.

Thanx Danny! Although that link is quite helpful, I was hoping to hear from guys that have our cars here and those that actually have the same or similar setup. Anyone here with BBS LMs, I'm sure there is many!!!
