Iíve got a set of F10 M5 wheels and Iím going to try the rear 20x10 wheels at the front and experiment with the sizes. Iím well aware wider tyres on the same width will reduce feel and precision but of course the 20x10 will reverse that with 273/35r20. The 285/30r20 also has a shorter sidewalk which should create a similar feel even though they are a bit wider.

I've gone 275s in the front and to compensate, added some toe out as well to front. The car corners on rails, and yes, i've tracked it, not on street speeds. I highly recommend 275 front

I had NT01s 275 squared on my F80 and was driving home from COTA... it was raining hard with lots of standing water and the car was a real handful. Granted, extreme rain but hydroplaned way more than I would've liked.

Those tires were fantastic in dry though!

Coming from my fbo M4 I feel my stock f06 M6 sticks very well with the Pzero/s. I had 285 rear super sports and still was barely hookin on the M4.

I run the Nitto 555G2 in the front for traction in the rain, as long as i don't put a lot of TQ down while it's wet I never lose traction and if it hydroplanes it's for a split second in the rear with the 315 NT-01's only so I still have control from the fronts. I would not run road course or drag radial tires on front and rear on a daily, but just the rear has been working for me rain or shine

Hope you guys are right!
I’m getting a fresh set of MP4S tomorrow and I went with the 305’s in the rear and the 275’s up front!
I am considering lowering my M6 GC a bit, should I be concerned with rubbing?

They feel awesome! I’m totally impressed!
To be honest, they stick so well that the car now feels under powered, lol
The Pirellis used to slip all over the place, but the MP4S have this car glued down!
