e36 m3 wheel/tire advice

what up guys? as u know i just bought a m3 and heres the deal. i have kumho ecsta's on the front and falken somethings on the back. both sets are about 50%. i cant stand it and it kinda makes the steeringwheel itself shake back and forth. ANYWAY, i know i want the oz superleggeras (they are on close out sale from Tirerack.com) and i know i want to buy the same tires that are on my 328is, kumho ecsta mx's. the OZ's are 18x8 and i can have the front at 225 and the rear at 245 but i want to be able to rotate them....so..........i was thinking go w/ 235/40/r18 all the way around...so any feed back would be great :-D

i always thought the superlaggeras were kinda rice.... as in, back a couple of years ago, they were the hardest wheels to get on the original NFS underground.....

You have three choices, stand behind our troops, grab a gun and toe the line with our troops, or stand in front of them, they can use the extra armor.

yes im pretty sure 235's will fit the front ok, i have 17's with 225/45 up front with room to spare so 18's with 235 shouldnt b to much to ask.
