Question Anyone running Briegestone Potenza RE-71R's?

I love these tires on my M3, but looks like the best matched sizes (OEM hollow spokes) are 225/40/18 92W and 285/30/18 93W's offered by Tirerack.

Would I regret that size? Any other recommendations for similar performance tires (street+autox).

I don't think you'll find anyone running with 285/30/18s here. It's either 295/30/18 or 315/30/18. Ok, few hardcore guys are running monster 335s.

I loved the RE-11s on my WRX STi, great tires. If only they were available in 295/30 :-(

There are several of us running Yok AD08Rs on the street (and track). They also work great, my only complaint is that they got loud @ approx. half life remaining.

Try the Potenza S-02A tires in OEM sizes.

Switched to the Yokohama AD052 and its more comparable to the grip and longevity (low) of the RE71Rs. Very good tire and is available in stock sizing. There has also been a significant price drop on this tire on tirerack.

Re71R is the tire of choice for my local autox. They are sticky but also loud and wear quickly. They are also one of the cheapest competitive tires. In Canada they are dirt cheap at Costco.

They don't last long if you do a lot of DE/lapping days so I would recommend a different tire if you want them to last a while.

Another option to consider for street/track duty is the Falken RT-615K+. I got ~4200 miles out of a set including a few AutoX events, and you can get them in 245 + 315.
