thanks, I have a convertible and like to drive w/top down a lot , will this be a quiet tire, also budget minded , would like to have a widther look but don't whant to give up to much of a soft ride , not that the m3 is a musshy ride, by far , Ihave not owned a car that hugs the road as much as this m3 beast, I at times get my adrelalin pumping going thru my 6 speed manual transmission on 6000 rpms, conering a unbeatible experiance,,,this is a car I bought as a inpollse reaction , I have it for sale , but every time I drive it I change my mind, That 635csi looks grand,

No one in the US had these when I was looking, otherwise this is what I'd pick.

Thanks for the compliment

Eagle F1 GS-D3 did very, very well in a lot of testing. They performed with the elite and for the msot part aren't quite as expensive. I've never run them so I don't have personal experience. Michelin Pilot Sport 2's are also a great tire, but they are very expensive.

My favorite tire that i've run thus far are Bridgestone Potenzas Poleposition SO-3's. They were very, very sticky. They never squealed. They were awesome. Onl downside is they were very soft and did not have a very long life. Maybe 20,000 miles.

...very very very

I run the GS-D3's and they really are amazing. Very sticky when dry and amazingly almost as sticky when wet.



Terrible in the snow, though.

Coming soon...
