Slicks?

Hey guys, I dont have any experience with slicks so I'm reaching out to someone who does. What wheel and tire (slicks) will fit on the F10 when I got to the track and try the 1/4? thanks in advance

Yoko Advan AD08 is also very good. M3 owners love this.

Will 19s even fit on our huge brakes? I heard some board members tried 19s and they dont even fit

I am one of the 19" owners initially went for aftermarket but when it came time to test fit on the M5, they did not even come close of clearing the brakes.

At the end, have to go back to oem stock 19" (which I use for winter setup). As of today, I only heard HRE is trying to come out with 19" that will fit the M5, but this was 4+ months ago or so.

If you are going to track the car, I guess you will have to get 20"... that's the only option as far as I know.

Hoosier makes a road race slick, but I have no idea whether it would be suitable for drag racing. http://www.hoosiertire.com/rrtire.htm
It's a 19" with a 295 section width that will mount on a 10 to 12" rim.
