Hey Guys

I've got a 2000 model 328I (4 door standard, premium/sport) and the owner's manual suggests that I use 225/45 ZR17 tires (I've got 17 inch tires).

Most of the costs I am running across range from $160 - $230 per tire. Does anyone have any suggestions for a cheaper high performance tire, and where to get it? I have checked with Costco, WalMart and Just Tires (here in California).

I would also like to get a tire that I can get 40 - 45K miles.

Thanks!!

The Bridgestones RE950's have impressed me like no other tire has.
I had Goodyear Eagle F1's on my 300zx twin turbo that cost $1500 for 4!
The RE950's are better at less than half the price.
I was always a goodyear guy till I discovered Bridgestone.
Will only by Bridgestones going forward.
Check out the reviews.
Good luck!

PS You don't need Z rated tires on a 328, that is pure BS!
