  4. How to buy new tyres without getting caught in the spin

    Tire & Wheel Forum
    When it comes time to buy new shoes for your e46, how do you choose? As many of you will already know: Choice is subjective, personal. Not objective or in any way scientifically measured. It is likely never true that a tyre and size on someone else's car means it will perform the same way...
  5. Winter Tire Recommendation

    Tire & Wheel Forum
    Hey everyone, So I currently run two sets of tires on my 05 M3. Great set of P4S in the summer..but what I'm currently using for my winter tires is not great. It's good all seasons in the back and older summer tires in the front. My intuition is that this is probably not the best idea, but...
