Dunlop came with a good result in a wet and dry tire test.

Is money an issue? I am a fan of Michelins as the "perfect tire," but you'll be paying for it as they're always expensive (the good ones). If you don't want to spend $150 a tire, look at Pirellis, below that, Yokohamas, and finally, the best bargain in my opinion are Kumhos. If you want to know more about tires and self-educate to form your own opinion, go to www.tirerack.com. That place is INCREDIBLE when it comes to tires. Cheap prices and everything you could ask for with consumer reviews specific to make and model. And no, I don't work for them.


Crap, I think I may be a yuppie...

bridgestone and yokohama make the most consistant tires and they are probably the best bang for buck

Bridgestone RE950's...Best tires I have ever owned!
Because they are all season they are not bad in the winter as well!
I bought them for my 318I a couple years ago, my 330i has brand new continentals that came with the car (total crap compared to the 950's)

I had a set of eagle F1's on my 300zxtwinturbo, the bridgestone RE950's are much better for half the price!
Good luck!

I got those kumho Ecstas for my 318i. For $41 a tire, those tings were PHENOMENAL. Actually, admittedly the sidewalls were a bit soft, but they gripped like a baby on a tit.

The michelin pilots are nice, yes, but a bit pricey, like most of their tires. Oh well, if price is not an issue...
