BF Goodrich KDW's are sick.

I've got 335's on stang and marro, never failed me grip wise. Traction wise, they obey the master, but pushing 880hp and 920 ft lbs at just 3.2k rpm I think they understand who's the masta.

My cars are, 1989 Mustang GT 5.0 Modular, 1989 LS-2 Camaro IROC-Z, 1996 M3 E36, and 1997 M3 E36. Stock is slow, and cars are meant to go fast enless you drive a civic.

I agree on the KDW's. That's what I have on my 20"ers.

On my 18s, for a little more money, Michelin Pilot Sport 2's.

1995 E38 740i. Highly modded. Faster than you.

Sold 2-28-07: 1997 E36 M3/4, 8-30-05 RIP 1997 528i

I had NT Extreme 555's on my 325 and they were decent. But id recommend some Bridgestone Potenza's RE501 Pole Positions, or Michelin Pilot Sports. 2 Great tires for an M3 IMO

The good tire company's to follow for performance are

BF Goodrich number one
Nitto number two
Pirelli number three
Cooper number four
And
If you feel the need
to go lower
Bridgestone is okay,
Goodyear is sorta cheap, Yokohama I'd never run just me, no legitimate reason, Toyo's I hear are good too, but again no exp.

Nitto's are overrated for the cost, BF Goodrich is worth the money. Pirelli and Cooper have records to back em up too...

people forget toyo, toyo proxes t-1r's are badass tires, or if you are actually racing RA-1's are excellent(the tire turner motorsport uses)

my roomate runs t-1r's on his 1998 stg 2 supercharged m3 and they rock. ive done all kinds of antics in them, and for the price they are very good.
