The car, a 95 BMW 540. It's a 4 liter V-8.
Southern California, no snow, but can be plenty of rain.
The tire, Kumho Exta Platinum.
This is now my 3rd set of Kumho's. Last two sets were on an Audi.
These Platinums are nice! I don't race, but am spirited. They corner, they absorb shock, are not noisy.
First time I had to do an emergency maneuver, I was shocked at how well the Platinums turned in and stayed in the corner.
After that, I had a LOT more confidence in the tires. I can tell how much grip I have left by the sound of the tires. The noise on sharp, aggressive turnin is not intrusive or squeaky. It's not going to freak out the wife. But the tires tell you what is going on with the road and where they are at.
Way better than the tires that were on the BMW before. These tires brought out the BMW in this car.
Confidence inspiring, you know what the car is going to do.
On the highway, they soak up the bumps and give a great ride. The Bilsteins help, but noticeable difference.
Probably one of the better tires I bought.
No doubt, when this car needs tires again, it's getting these exact tires.
