I am getting ready to buy new tires for my 2002 530i. I am not a very aggressive driver, so I don't need race car tires at all. They will be on my car year round, so I am looking for an all season tire (I occasionally drive in the snow) that is quiet and smooth. Anyone have great success with their rubber?

P6000's certainly seem popular- think I might try them myself next time. But for a more all weather tyre you could try either of the following "Goodyear Aquatread" "Continental Aquacontact", they are supposed to be excellent in the wet as well as the dry - Havent got a clue about snow though.
