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~
