Initial Review, 31,192 Miles on Tires
This is a wrap-up review. My 330 Ci had the staggered tire sizes, so the size listed is for the fronts only. The Rears were 255 wide and 35-series. I was working construction while I had these and that's hard on tires. I had to replace six of them at one time or another. The mileage is for the one tire that lasted from the date I bought the car new until it needed replacement. I drove them mostly commuting, plus a few local business trips and an annual drive from the West Side of L. A. up Pacific Coast Highway to Monterey every August. The thing that impressed me most was how they wore considering the grip they provided. They were also pretty forgiving of my ham-handed driving style on the twisty bits. Rain performance was much better than the Yokohama S-Drives that came with my present 330Ci. I tried an E90 and couldn't wait to go back to an E46. The Tire Rack doesn't list these any more but I'll bet they can get me a set when the Yokohamas hit the wear bars this year. Or maybe I'll try a Max Performance All-season tire, like the new General G-Max AS-03. I have Generals on my wife's 325iT and they are great. A caveat: I buy tires partly on tread appearance, so I don't give those boring-looking Potenzas etc. a second glance.
