So this summer I bought some new tires for my 97 328i. Since im a little tight for cash right now, i skipped the Michelin Pilots the car had when i bought it. They were $124 each at costco (mounting balance etc included) so instead I got BFGoodrich Traction T/A. Tire Rack rated them fairly well, and for a price of $74 each (mounting balance etc included too) I thought why not. So far, the summer handling was great, the rain was awesome, and the snow, holy crap, traction cintol didnt come on once! givin it was only about 2 inches, I even made it up my buddy's steep driveway. Anyway, I'm sure most of you have your winter tires and summers, but if your tight for cash bet this tire, better than the over-rated michelin!
