BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
i am picking up my E92 M3 on Friday
and i will install all season tires at the dealership
i will bring back the OEM tires (18") with me
Michelin Pilot Sport PS2
they have delivery miles (i think they have 3 miles according to the dealers website, anyway i won't drive on them)
any takers?
and yes i know All season are a compromise but i can't afford to have 2 sets of wheels and i don't have storage space for them either
and this will be my daily driver

$550

That is a great price if anyone needs a set.

Good luck!

i decided to keep them
found a set of 235/40 and 265/40 Pirelli 240 winter tires on ebay for $400 including shipping
9/32 and 10/32 tread
great deal
so will keep these for summer
although so far i am very unimpressed with the OEM tires
they slip in the dry and in the wet
might change them to all seasons when winter is over

I have to say I totally disagree with your assessment on the OEM PS2s. I find them spectacular on the street. Tons of grip wet or dry, smooth ride, and quiet.

+1 ...

why would you put all seasons tires for the summer and not leave high performance tires on the car like M3 ? Doesn't make any sense

+2...Especially if you think the OEM tires don't have enough grip. There is no all-seaon tire out there that will have more grip than the OEM PS2s in the dry or in the wet above 40 degrees F.

well initially when i got the car the temp was hovering around the 40 mark
so i thought maybe its too cold for them
but the last week we had several days in the 50s
and one day 60 degrees with rain
all 3 days the back would slip way too easily
i am comparing with my old crossfire that had conti all seasons and my Audi A5 that dunlop had summer tires
neither of those had any slip in the back wheels unless i was intentionally giving tons of power to make it slip
with the M3 whenever i am at a light and about to make a left or right turn
with the power button turned off
the back wheels slip
way too easily

it's either the tires are not good
or i think the back tires are not wide enough for the power
the crossfire had 215hp with 285 tires
the A5 had 265 hp with 255 tires
so 265 on the M3 with 414hp seems to be too narrow
anyway i will try them again in summer
but i am always worried when i am cornering fast, that the car will just let go
i never had that sensation in either of the other 2 cars

I highly recommend going to a driver's school sponsored by the BMW CCA where you can learn the limits of your car in a safe environment with experienced instructors. All at $150 to $200 a day.

The M3 has much higher cornering limits than both the Crossfire and the A5.

The M3 will just not let go with DSC turned on, nor will it let the back end get to out of shape.

+1...The PS2's are awesome tires. On the track last summer they were incredible, then half way through the day, heavy rain started and they were overly incredible!!...IMO...

ya man...i dunno what the op is talking about. I barely drive on my PS2, because I have my 20" Nitto Invos. But I tracked my PS2s and they were unreal, so sticky it was like driving a go kart on a 100+ degree day!

Driving lessons may be needed!

if it was driver error it would have applied to all the cars i have owned
so that shoots down the driver error bit

i've driven both of those cars much faster than my M3
and in corners at least, i am more worried in the M3 than either of them
the Crossfire would simply not let go in corners
the audi is not really a fair comparison as it was 4wd so i could usually apply power all the way through a corner, unlike a rwd car

they may be excellent on a track when they are all heated up and become sticky
but i am talking about using them on the road in temps around 50-60
so both people who said they rock on the track may be right
but that doesn't make them good on the road
