I've almost started to question whether the M3 is almost too good to be safe....if you can follow my warped logic?
Just my rambling thoughts.....
Wheels are 8inch fronts and 9 inch rears. Tyres are 225*45 front and 245*45 rear.
When you`re already accelerating around a roundabout its a bit hard to jump further on the accelerator :). I can induce oversteer but I usually do that by fast entry on to a roundabout with quick sharp steering (not smoothly steering around it) and then some good throttle.
PS I dont do this all the time, but I have some wide safe roundabouts near me and been experiementing when its a bit wet 8-).
I am running same sizes. What exactly do you have, rims and tires? 225/45 front and 245/??? rear?
Are u not concerned about understeer? I have 225 up front and 245 on the rear on 16`s. On damp or wet roads I can feel the front end atart to understeer when cornering quickly.
Try to put wider rubber on the front if u can
I finally got my M Contours down to the wheel shop to be refinished and wanted to make sure I bought the correct spacers and tires. The wheels are 17x7.5 up front and 17x8.5 in the rear. The tires I want to go with are Yokohama AVS Sport 215/45/17 up front and 245/40/17 in the rear. I know a couple other folks are running M Contours as well. I'd appreciate some advice on what size spacers I should use for this setup.
Thanks and take care.
