The largest RA 1they make is 235/45R17. Not a good size even for an M3, let alone our Coupes. Supposedly Toyo is going to be making the RA 1's in decent sizes sometime soon. I hope they do.

I tried Toyo RA 1s on my E30 M3 at the track and skid pad last weekend. They had gone only about 200 miles before they saw the track. On the (wet) skidpad they stuck like glue. There was an Audi S4 there and I kept having to slow down because I was catching him (2 cars on the pad at a time). One of the instructors who had been in the other cars got into mine and after a couple of turns around the pad he asked what kind of tires I was using. Hed been doing the skid pad all day and nothing was sticking like these tires. Seems he needs tires on his E36 M3, and will buy a set of these. The dry handling was great too - they stuck like glue.
