It's loud.
    that's so weird. i don't have any of those issues with my bimmerworld ones.

    Are these the same RTABs as the E46 M3?

    You also have reasonably fitted wheels and tires. I'm runnin that stretch lyfe with no sidewall flex to take up some of the impact.

    true... but, 245/34/18's, they have less sidewall (0.2") than stock diameter. with my 17" x-ice winters, it actually feels perfect.

    Exactly. The Growlour drove perfect on winter 17's + vincebar. I was hoping to drive it on the 18" summer tires but then you showed up with your 335i and we know how that drive went...
