I have installed a set on 235/45/17 Nexus on 17x7.5" TSW Concept 2's on my
97 M3 last weekend and so far I'm very satisfied.
First of all, Nexus are huge for it's size. I have no clearance problems,
but if you have a modified suspension, be careful. My car is stock with
exception of Koni shocks and alignment.
My initial impressions are very favorable. The ride is comparable with
MXX3, and I didn't noticed Yok's being much noisier at highway speeds. I
find the steering response and handling more than adequate for driving on
the streets, and fairly comparable to MXX3's. The feedback could be just a
bit more muted, but for daily driving for me it's a plus. I have not driven
on Nexus in the rain yet.
I have to say that I don't push the car to the limit on public roads, and
for auto-x and track events I use go-fast BFG's.
In summary I think Nexus's are a fantastic bargain at $107/tire and I can't
find significant difference in daily driving with 2.5 times more expensive
I hope it helps. YMMV.
