Tires for E39 2001 530iA

Hi all,

I noticed the other day that my OEM Michelins got a bubble on the wall, everyone keeps saying that this is because I hit something. TRUST ME, this is not the case. I read some reviews that say a lot of people are having the same problems with the tire.

What would you guys recommend for an All-Season tire for a 2001 530iA.

Something that will give me good tread life, comfortable, secure winter driving, and some preformance in the summer.

I know you cant get everything in one shot, but suppose you were looking for these things in priority as listed above???

Thanks all...

In Windsor, your best bet in the winter would likely be an ice radial. General all-seasons are no where near as good in the ice and hardpack snow as a dedicated tire. Something like the Michelin X-Ice (I use these in the winter on some cheap steel wheels, and they kick ass). Then you could get a nice performance tire for the shoulder seasons and summer on your OEM wheels, you'll have way more fun in the summer, and way less headaches in the winter.

All great things are simple, and many can be expressed in single words: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.
