    I was not aware of that...thanks man. I just took the red car on a work trip and my odo showed ~1050 miles, while the actual distance (according to Google maps) was about 950. This is on the stock size 255/35r18.

    You have 245/40r18 square fyi. I remember looking at your fitment when I was trying to decide if that tire was too tall. 245/45 would be way too big on an e46.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    I have 18x8.5 245/35 square. To me, one doesn't really need stagger, as that promotes understeer.
