A friend has a -03 636 with 120/70, no clearance problems.
I (-05 636) have always used 120/70 front tire, like it better when cornering/track day driving (feedback, grip). Also more common, so it's easier to get hold of tyres.

Tire pressure:
On the road: 2.25 bar (~33 psi) front, 2.5 bar (36 psi) rear.
On the track: 2.0-2.1 bar (~30 psi) in both front and rear.
This is what I drive with, gives me the best handling/performance. If one wants more mileage from the tyres one could have a little bit more, like 35 psi front and 40 psi rear.
