    Interesting.. the 235/40-17 are pricey compared to the Z1s (like >$20 more per tire). I wonder if it’s a volume thing since that size is also $10 more per tire than 255/40-17 ZIIs.

    Might be time to finally pull the trigger on those 17×9″ wheels when I get my next set of tires…

    I run 245/40/17 on 8.5″ wheels… perfect match on the Z1’s and should be on the Z2’s.

    More popular sizes are cheaper even if they are larger.

    Unfortunately the stock wheels on the 95 M3 are a 17×7.5 square set-up, so I can’t go wider than 235 with those. And if I’m going to go wider, I may as well go for as much rubber as I can fit under the fenders, so 9″ it will be!

    Let me know what you guys need. I can get the 255/40-17s for $165ea plus $51 to ship a set from Reno. I can bring them down to Marina or you can pick them locally.

    We use the Star Specs for wet work at autocross and on the track. Never let us down.

    Finally! I’ve been waiting for these to hit the US. Now I can pull the trigger on the wheels/tires I’ve had my eyes on :woohoo:
    If anyone is in need of Apex wheels, there’s a group buy happening. See link below:

    Nice to know I will have replacements when the Z1s are gone.

    That explains why I had so much trouble getting Z1’s 2 or 3 weeks ago.

    I’m interested to see how these tires (Z2) will take heat. Z1 were not very good with heat tolerance.

    Hal – looks like they made them this time for my car..almost. All the specs look good except the overall diameter vs the OEM. They’re 0.6″ larger, so 3 tenths on each side. Is that significant?

    The sizes I’m looking at are for my 19 inch rims (8″ and 9′ width respectively): 245/35 and 275/30. How much can you get them for?

    isfnfast – I don’t think you’d want to run 275’s on a 9″ wheel. The tire will really be ballooned on it and will sacrifice performance. If you can fit a 10″ wheel, that’s the ideal wheel width for a 275.
