Tires?

Asked by Feb 26, 2011 at 06:48 PM about the BMW 5 Series

Question type: General

I just changed tires. I was running on Goodyear Eagles but really poor mileage in them. Went to a Michelin Sport AS. Very tight and responsive and rated to run 50,000 miles. We'll see. Anybody else like these tires?

Michelin Pilot Sports are great tires. I had them on my 540i/6 when I bought it. They lasted a long time, and had pretty good grip for a hard compound. I just got a set of Hankook Ventus V12s and cannot believe how much more grip & hook they have than the pilots. They are a softer summer tire, but seem to have decent traction in rainy weather. All 4 balanced great and were delivered to my door for just over $400 (staggered 17s). I got about 13k miles out of my Yokohama S Drives, ($400 for rears) if the Hankooks last more than 10k miles the way I drive, I will never look back...

I love Michelin tires but I have never been happy with them on any of my BMWs. For the Bimmers I have found Yokahoma S Series to be really good tires - last long, ride well, handle well, and they don't reduce gas mileage. But thats just me!
