Best All-Season Tires for Late-Model BMW 3 Series

Model year 2012 saw BMW introduce the F30 3 Series. The major change was this was the first time the entire lineup used turbo charged engines. While the array of configurations is expansive, including four door, station wagon, hatchbacks, as well as numerous trim level options (this blog focuses on the standard four-door sedan).

This car sports 225/50R17 run-flat tires, however, some non-run-flat tires are worth considering when replacing your tires. You can learn more about whether or not moving away from run-flats is right for you by checking out, "Are You Looking to Graduate from Your BMW Run-Flat Tires?"

  • Michelin Premier A/S - This is Michelin's flagship Grand Touring All-Season tire featuring a 60,000-mile treadlife warranty. It offers great wet traction and very good snow traction. The tire features expanding rain grooves so wet traction loss is minimized over the life of the tire.
  • Pireli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus - The tire is offered with a 70,000-mile treadlife warranty and really impresses in the snow, while also delivering a very smooth and quiet ride.
  • Continental PureContact  with EcoPlus Technology- Continental's PureContact with EcoPlus Technology provides excellent wet and snow traction. Ride quality falls a little shy of the other options, but nothing too concerning, except for the most discerning of drivers.
