Tire Recommendation?

975

Asked by May 28, 2012 at 10:43 AM about the 2003 BMW 3 Series 325i Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Looking to replace the 225/40/18 tires on my sport package equipped 325iT. I live on the Oregon coast
so I don't much snow or ice. Any suggestions for an all season performance tire? More concerned with
ride comfort and wet traction stability than treadwear life.

What year and model are you referring to? E46 I imagine? That would help. Otherwise, try hitting up TireRack.com They have great suggestions and pricing, not to mention recommendations. Props on the sportswagen!

Sorry, I had to look back at your profile. I personally love my Yokohama's. Plenty of grip in the Florida rains and much quieter than my Pirelli's, which were quiet and turned LOUD after 20K. For the money, Michelins and Continentals are always a good bet.

Thanks for your response and advice. I'm looking at Yokohama ADVAN S.4's on TireRack.com Is this the style/model of Yokohama you have? Cheers.

I'm running AS530's 97H because my vehicle is a tab heavier and I tend to load it down regularly.

I love my Hankook Ventus V10's, Korean tires have come a long way.... good in the rain, pretty quiet, they do tend to tramline a bit but its acceptable for directional tires. Oh, and the price is right!

Thanks for your response and recommendation Tony. Help me out here, what exactly is tramlining?

Sorry, if you haven't already googled it, it is the tendency for the tires to follow tire grooves or ruts in the road.
