What in the world is "inches rims"?

Here is a good piece of advice I like to give all my clients:

Do not buy Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires for a daily driver.

Those tires can be very dangerous at times. Just buy yourself a set of regular PS2's or Bridgestones.

If you are tracking your car, then fine, go ahead and get the Sport Cup tires. If not, move on to a safer alternative.

I agree that PSCs can be problematic in standing water. The BMW version has altered tread geometry, which makes it a little safer, but, speaking from experience, they still hydroplane, on the street and the track. There is plenty of discussion on all of this in the following thread, so I am not sure why a new thread was necessary.

Eugene-TAIWAN, post your questions there. If you go to the tirerack website, you can see the available sizes.
