    Stopped by to look at the seller's PSS yesterday. They were in great shape with slightly under 8/32 tread depth remaining. Seller wanted them gone (new Porsche had replaced the M235i) so he took $300...

    bandwagon, thanks.

    Since my 135s are still good I'm just on a tire hunt. Turns out the M235 in the Star BMW PSS has standard load tires front and extra load (xl) tires rear, but runs extra load...

    Thanks. My first thought as well was that the seller had made a mistake but the pictures with the ad show the tire sidewall and it is 245. Checked the car specs for the 2016 235i and 225/40/18 fronts...

    Looking at the PS4S as well. The Continental Extreme Sports that came on my car are close the wear bars and howl like offroad mudders.

    I went with Sports and the stock ZHP springs as part of a suspension refresh. Did a 600 mile trip last weekend and all good. Replaced suspension bits that were all original and unsurprisingly...

    Thanks for the reply.

    Interesting thing is that FCP only lists the Genuine BMW option for this part and does not offer the Rein. Not sure why. I'll contact them tomorrow and ask. ECS lists the...

    I did manage to sell the set of 225/50/17s with...

    Good point. We get blend shifts here, usually with a price hike and the "justification" that the production is shifting over and causing supply delays.

    Oli77, thanks. Seems I've been having a bad CL run of late, though this one's on me for not checking closely enough when I picked them up.
