I have Pirelli 205/55 M+s Summer tires on my 2005 320i, they handle well and they arent too expensive, the problem is the depth of the wheel wells, you can only spec and put certain tires on your car. Hope this helps!

I have Nitto NT555's

245/40-18
265/35-18

I had Pirelli's and Bridgestone's before them and the Nitto's are superior in every way. The few times I've been in the rain with them they've been pretty grippy and on dry roads they are ridiculously awesome, particular when you get some heat in them. However, they are a little noisy and harsh on bad roads.

I just bought this Saturday new Bridgestone Potenza's RE 760 Sport from Discount Tire and they are great plus have more thread than the run flats.

Running on some Firestone Primewell tires 235/265. They have it on sale right now for $80/each (does not matter what size).

Here's the link to the tires.

GITI TIRE - PRIMEWELL - PZ-900

Great on wet/dry so far. not too noisy and grip corners with confidence.

Thanks for info. Great thread to gain info. lets keep it going.

I've had good luck with price/service at Discount Tire. Tire Rack has some specials on runflat Bridestone and Pirelli Tires.
