Anyone running 245 and 265 on the 437's?

Hi Guys,

Long story short, I picked up a set of 437's for my 2020 M2CP and I wanted to put the stock 245/265 on them but the 437's came from my previous F80 which ran 255/275.

I'm basically wondering if the stock M2 tires will look too stretched on the 437's since the car came with the awful stock wheels non concave wheels.

Thanks for input.

The 437 came with that tire size from the factory on the original M2. You should be fine. They’ll look the same in terms of tire “stretchiness” as the 788 wheels (same size wheel).

Just like pz619 said, the 437's came with 245/265 from the factory on the OG M2. They look perfect IMO.

245/265 MPS4S:

Yes indeed they do look good. Is it possible to install tpms sensors aftermarket if the wheels I have don't have them (my onboard computer keeps showing a glitch) and I don't want to code them out.

Yup, you can either buy new ones or transfer them over from your stock 788s.

The font and rear 437 rim widths are 9" Front, 10" Rear. The front 245 tires can fit on a rim that's 8-9.5" wide without being stretched. The rear 265 tire can fit on a rim that's 9-10.5" wide without being stretched.

You can get a full set of TPMS sensors from TireRack for $140. Not sure what pricing you get in Canada, but as far as USD that's a bargain. I've used their aftermarket sensors for years and never had an issue.

I'm getting $125 per sensor so that's good info, even if it's in US $$.

Nice 👍🏽
