Tires for 18'' rims

I'm finally getting some 18'' rims soon and I'm leaning towards getting the tires something other than Continental. Any suggestions based on experience with other brands or should I stick with Continental. This is for my 4dr 325i sedan. Thx!!!

Thumbs up

I had Continental and Bridgestone on mine when purchased but very noisy. Went with the only UHP tire designed from the start to be quiet the Yokohama AVS dB decibel V550 235/40 18 great tires imo.

Thanks! The place I'm getting the rims only sells Nexen tires. When asked if I could bring in the tires and just get the rims they jacked up the price so I think I'm going to order everything online and take them to a shop.

For about $150 more I can get some Yokohama's UHP and not have to worry about tires down the road. The reviews I found for nexen was very mixed. Thx for your help!
