In Reply to: Anyone running 225/50/16's?? posted by JamesM on December 22, 2000 at 08:45:10:

The reason I ask is because the 225/45/16 are more expensive, and there are fewer from which to choose. I also have an 88 M5, and that's the tire size for it, so having two sets that would fit either car would be great. I guess I could do a swap sometime, but it's cold out here. I'm moving to Florida. Screw this cold weather crap!

I have an E30 M3 with a Ground Control coilover suspension and Koni single adjustable shocks. I currently use 225/50-16 Toyo Proxes R-1s on 16x7.5 Fittipaldis and 225/50-16 Yoko AOR32s on 16x8 Revolutions. There is no rub with the Yokos on the Revos, the offset is perfect. However, I had substantial front rub with Toyos on the Fittipaldi's and had to remove the plastic lining all around the front wheel wells. For what it's worth, I'm moving to 15" Kosei wheels in the spring, because there are better options in "race rubber" in the 15" size (more selection, cheaper), and the car is said to be faster on 15" wheels. YMMV.
