Anyone have an idea about the best tyres to be used for 328i '95 coupe?
I mean for stability and to be suitable for hot weather, I guess bridge stone is the best right? but i need the model for width and so on,

Also if someone can give me some small hints how to improve this car performance some how with small modifications

Let us know the exact size of the rims and that may help us out more...I have Bridgestones and they are really good...BF Goodrich, Pirelli, Nitto, Continental, Toyo, Yokohama, Michelin, Goodyear are all very good tires...I'd stay away from Dunlop indefinitely though...bad experiences with a few of them ghead

If you want a lot of options go with the stock 205/60/15. If you want a bigger contact patch, go with 215/60/15 or 215/55/15 (tricky to find). You could also fit like a 225/50/15, but I doubt you'll find the size anywhere.

Personally I've got the 215/60/15s and they're decent. But the sidewall does look a little big.

I actually have 215/55/15 on my stock 15s...they can't be all that hard to find. I actually got mine through sears, so it was relatively easy. Bridgestones are good...they look pretty aggressive as well.

There was no 328 in 95? They started in 96.

Anyway, try out Yokohama ES100's to start, they're not too expensive and are amazing for the price.

It depends I guess on if you have the 15" bottlecaps, or the 16" sport wheels, both are factory aluminum wheels.

I'm a firm believer in Toyo, they have never failed me.

What do you mean by its license? For the longest time, I thought my dad was wrong about the year of his '93 Volvo. Every imaginable label and etching said 1992 on it. Then I decoded its VIN, resulting in a '93 and soon realized model year typically comes a year after the year of manufacture found on all the stickers. Errr, duh, I knew that! Was just testing everyone! ; ]

to find the tire size, check the series of numbers/letters on the side of your tire.

For more details on what the numbers mean, read the forum tire FAQ<---click here.
