This tire has one major fault. Notice those that say it is hard to balance. No... it cold spots. It is noticeable at 50 degrees and real bad at 30 and lower. It also does not like severe negative camber such as BMW calls for. But it is quieter than the same tread in Bridgestone and dos not follow grooved concrete like Bridgestone. It is also much better priced than same. Maybe in a taller profile the thumping won't be so bad but in very low profiles I'd pass.
