in cruising the web the name DUNLOP came up...practically NO info on the tire type...funny that you cannot get COOPER tires to fit a mini COOPER~ strange world~

Z3 2.5, hmm you must not be in the US. We have the 1.9L or the 2.8L, both use the size 225/50-16, but the 2.8L uses a staggered setup, 225/45-17 for the front, and 245/40-17 for the rear. What are you looking for, summer, winter or All-Season tires?

a Z3 could not possibly be in an ICY place or windy, rain environment...the car just ain't built for that kinda service~


I'm in Australia . I am also enquiring what r the best tires for my Z3 I have only had the car a few months anx from day 1 I have been concerned about the tires I feel like I glide on the road ?? I was driving one day wen it was drizzling with rain I was going very slow and was going around a roundabout i lost the car and ended up on the roundabout , all good though No one hurt . A bit shocked though and now I'm nervous to drive the car :( my hubby can't see his I lost it or understand. :( and won't buy me new tires .... The tires on the car are in very good condition Can u plz advise what could make me feel safer
