Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

Just had service done to my car and was told that the inside of my current Hankook Ventus rear tires are worn to the belts after 16K miles. Absolutely not surprised considering the low tread rating and the excessive camber of the BMW's sport suspension setup. Front tires still have enough life left to probably last as long as the 2 new rears....  Read More

Wider Tires on Your BMW 3 Series

While moderating the BMW forums, one of the most common questions I answer is in regards to upgrading tires to a larger size. Using a wider size on the same wheel while maintaining the same overall diameter is known in the tire industry as "plus zero" sizing. This is typically done to get a larger contact patch and for an improved cosmetic appearance. Here is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

I have about 300 miles on this tire on my daily driver 2003 BMW 325i sedan with stock suspension. So far I have been impressed with this tire - it was inexpensive, it has much better dry grip than I was expecting and the wet traction in corners is also surprisingly better than I expected. The tire is not a load that I notice, but it does tend to slightly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Excellent tire! Greatest bang for the buck I've seen for this class tire. I have not driven them for over one year so the jury is still out on wear. So far, all three letters still show (DWS). That being said please consider my vehicle has negative camber on the rear which means the inner edges should wear before the rest of the tire.I also appreciate the...  Read More

My Experience with H&R Coil-Overs

There are many ways to upgrade your vehicle's suspension. You can simply replace the existing shocks (or struts) and springs to lower your vehicle. Sway bars (sometimes called anti-roll bars) can also improve handling and reduce body roll. However, many enthusiasts feel that the pinnacle of complete suspension upgrades is to install a set of coil-overs What...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Having gone through three sets of tires, the original run flats, and two sets of Goodyear Eagle f1 all seasons, the Continental DWS have been the best all-season tires for my z4!I average about 20k miles a year and am finally looking forward to putting those miles on these tires. The Goodyear's were great, handled well, in dry, rain and snow, but the road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A RFT

Tell you what, I'm actually impressed by the wear life. I actually achieved 40,000 miles on this tire. My driving style is just like most BMW drivers, which is, well, Bavarian way. Anyway, let's talk about the tire. The traction is not bad, but so-so when it's wet. It's about average. However, the corning is fantastic because it's run-flat. The sidewall is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

I have a 93 s13 hatch, with coilovers and all the suspension goodies, these tires were put on my car with 17x9 +25 wheels. I have to say I am very impressed for the price these tires are almost bald now because of back road fun after 30k miles, and they still perform very well, still hydroplane resistance is good and traction is still superb, now that being...  Read More

Suspension Shopping for my BMW 740i

My 1997 BMW 740 is likely overdue for a suspension overhaul. The potholed and broken pavement that is typical of this time of year has highlighted that fact. With over 180,000 miles on the vehicle (only about 20,000 are from my driving), I have not replaced the BMW shocks or springs and do not know whether the original owner did either. The...  Read More
