Yokohama advan apex v601

Anyone running these? I wonder if the 275/30R20's will fit up front on a stock competition M3.

I'm running them, 265/35-19 front with 285/35-19 rears. My normal setup was AD08R up front with the Apex rear. That setup is great but the AD08Rs are noisy and expensive (I also want to run a match set).
The Apexs feel like PS4s to me, super soft sidewalls, super comfy and what I consider excellent dry grip. Wet grip is good too but the Apexs up front make the steering feel numb (compared to the AD08Rs). I installed millway street camber plates and that helped some. I'm hoping dialing in a bit more negative camber helps more.

Overall I can say I love them for a rear tire. I need more street time with them to determine if I will ultimately keep them or switch back to an AD08R up front.
The Apexs are also a bit noisy on certain pavement but pretty darn quiet on fresh pave.

Thank you for the review of the tire. I was thinking of going with those on my 19's, but decided to go with Conti Extreme Contact DWS Plus 06 as an all-season tire I can run in fall and spring when temps drop. The deciding factor was extra sidewall for spring pot holes. I order the Millway stock camber plates and Eibach V1 springs for front. I was hoping to find a cheaper tire for the stock competition 20's and thought those APEX's might be a good tire.

My main complaint of the DWSs is that they flat spot easily. I have them on my wife's car and they don't like to sit for more than three or four days. So far as these Apexs break in up front they begin to give more feedback. I think it's also partly due to the camber plates.
