    335i e90 sport package tire help!

    Hey guys I have a 335i with the 18" sport package and have a few questions. well, first let me tell you the current situation. I ran my car at the track the other night and all I could manage was 2.1 60 foot on the stock run flats. I want to get a better 60 foot than my $#@!ing GTI, that's why I got the car, but I'm not sure that I'm ready for a full blown race tire. So, has anyone been able to run at least a 1.8 60 foot on a street tire? Also would a wider than stock tire benefit me, say a 275 instead of the 255 that I have now? Would it fit without rolling the fenders? Will it fit on the stock rim? I just need a little guidence so I know where to start. thanks!

    you can fit 265s on there but it will give the 'oversized tire' look..might want that for extra cushion in the sidewall for launching.

    You would prolly have to roll the fenders as well.

    Oversized won't bother me too much, the stock tires look too rounded like they're streched. Has anyone been able to get a decent 60 foot with streeet tires?

    That was an e92. I understand that they have more room for meats under their fenders. I wonder if he had some big 'ol tires on the back of his car. . I'll have to find him to find out.

    It is a complete waste to run street tires on the strip. Just go all the way for a drag radial, they aren't expensive. Do it right, you will never be satisfied with street tire 60 foots.

    I figured that was the way it works I really was hoping someone would say "Naa man, I just bought some Pep Boys brand mud terrains for $12 and was able to pull a 1.4 60 ft!" -oh well. I'll probably end up getting some decent tires first, just to get rid of these nasty runflats, then eventually get a dedicated drag tire. IF I don't lose interest in the car too soon. For some strange reason I'm craving a wagon of some sort.

    LMFAO i was literally laughing for 2 minutes and tearing. That was a good one Ryan lol.

    I guess the best way to go would be a drag set up. If you do that i doubt there would be any problems getting a 1.8 on the 60'.
