Okay I have Michelin Pilot sports on my M3 now and the rear are smoked. I think they were at 5/32 when I got it 4 months ago. I would like to michelin all around, but the pilot sports are $198 a tire and have a tread wear rating of 220. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on a tire that will handle as well and not wear out as fast and is cheaper. I think I am asking alot, but I would still like your input. Thanks

I have the Pilot Sport PS2 tires on my car, and they are by far the best tires I have ever had for any car in my life. I have put 15000 miles on them and the tread seems very good, but since I driver it hard and track it with these tires they are wearing a little fast on the outside edges (which makes sense!)
Good luck with your choice, but I highly recommend the PS2s

I, too, wanted the top of the line Michelins but I didn't want to fork over the $200 each.
So instead I went with The Pirelli PZero Nero M&S's. Well worth the price. Look it up on Tire rack. I think my review might still be there.


Crap, I think I may be a yuppie...

I just went with the Michilens so that they matched the front. I need to get it aligned now to make sure that they don't wear out. Does anyone know if the rear trailing arms have cams in them to have a all wheel alignment done?
