Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Bought the DWS Conti's for my C5 Corvette based on reviews and I've also had a set on a BMW M3 that I drove year round. They are very,very quiet and they ride much nicer than the OEM run flats. The softer sidewall results in steering response that is not as sharp as summer tires, but once you turn in, the tires grip well and are predictable. Traction is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D

This is the 3rd set of 3D's I've owned. First on my E46 330i and now on my M3. Just swapped out for a new set this season and again, these tires transform my BMW into an actual driveable car in the snow. I cannot state more strongly how solid these tires are, and more importantly, how other BMW drivers must swap out their performance rubber in the winter...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D

The M4 and my previous sets of M3's on two Subies are the best tire I've owned, period. One set was wearing down a bit more than I like in late spring, so I decided to take them into summer, couldn't wear them out. Great confidence on dry roads, off road mud, etc. I've been on glare ice where the ABS pumped a whole lot more than I would have liked trying to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Best tires I've ever had; I have them on both my E90 335i and my E92 M3. Traction is high and extremely predictable. Wet traction in our frequent Florida afternoon thunderstorms is superb. Excellent, even treadwear. What's not to like!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama S.drive

for the first 3,000 miles they were quiet, but at around 4,000 miles on san jose freeways, they can get noisy and transmit a lot of noise in the M3's cabin freeway speeds, on certain not smooth roads. I would say they are 75% performance of a michelin super sport 225/45/17 and 75% of the cost. S. Drives will hydroplane initially and then find the road. And...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3

Amazing 60,000 miles on set bought August 2009. Only replacing because they were manufactured 51/07 (they are 7 years old now) and the rubber is hard and stiff. Still have 1/8 inch of tread. Goodyear no longer makes this size. Just like the Michelin Pilot Sport MXX3 that fit my '98 M3 (my all time favorite tire); they quit making in my size and had to find a...  Read More

Need Winter Tires for Stock 19" M3 Wheels?

As a high-horsepower RWD car that comes with summer tires, the M3 desperately needs winter tires if you are going to drive it through wintry weather. Both the E90 and F80 M3 commonly come with 19" staggered wheels, which makes snow tires hard to find. In previous years, the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60 was available in 255/35R19 front and 275/35R19 rear, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

Installed the Ventus on my Mustang GT as a summer performance tire. I garage the car for the winter. Great tire with excellent grip in all conditions except snow. Quiet, stable when cornering, great stopping power and grip at launch. Wearing very evenly with rotation every 7k miles or so. I have about 12k miles on them now and they appear as new with little...  Read More

Don't Let the Fun Stop: Winter/Snow Tires for 2015 BMW M3 and BMW M4

My brother Tom was pretty happy with his E92 M3 until I went to South Carolina to drive the 2015 M3 and 2015 M4. Once he heard me rave about the F82 M4, he jumped on BMW's website to build his new 2015 M4. He'll soon need snow tires for his new vehicle.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I have had these tires on a 2008 Acura TSX as replacements for the OEM Michelin's. The reason for the purchase of these over the OEMs was because of the good online reviews and price difference.I consider myself somewhat of a spirited driver at times. I have no complaints regarding the handling, braking, and comfort of these tires. They've gotten me through...  Read More
