Tire Pros

Looks, quite, traction

Tire Cons

Handling,

I Put these on as they were in the "best" category, but will never buy them again. I've had my 330 since brand new (2004). Driving home I thought my rims were not tightened. Pulled over to ensure the lugs were tight, the car's rear end slides all over the place. I hate it; my wife thought I put some "racing tires" on the car and hates the way it feels with the road. I thought these would be a great tire, but they are poor IMO. Now I don't race, maybe race car drivers like the road feel, but not for us; you can't just cruise down the highway without the car trying to jump lanes - rapidly!

Tire Pros

Good dry traction Generally a quite ride

Tire Cons

Wears fast Cost a little high

I purchased these tires for my BMW 335i coupe about 2yrs ago and they are down to the barest of tread. They wear down quickly at first, I would say within 9-10 months half the tread is gone then it slows. The ride is a bit stiff partly due to the high tire pressure and low profile, but one should expect that when purchasing this type of tire. The grip is good for most of the tire life but for the last few months they have dropped off, particularly on wet surfaces. The ride noise is not an issue and quite good compared too many other tires that I have had over the years. Not a bad tire but I think you could get better ones now for the price of these.
