Great tires, I was a little worried about the noise level but they are not bad very similar to the PS2 noise level. Great handling tires better than the PS2.

Love these tires so much, transforms the car. Car is handling so well

Im running 245/275 ad08 tires right now and they run so much bigger then its actual size.

I compared the 275ad08 to a 295ps2 and its literally almost just as big.

You got more rubber than a Gene Simmons-ready concert tour bus.

Yep nice I got those advans too and love em, I have a square set up of 265\30\19's and they are awesome. Little less grip wet than the ps2s but the dry they rock!

I think these are the best performance tires out there for double duty. I'm running a 265/295 staggered setup and these things are like glue on the track. Awesome tires, but agreed are just a bit lacking in the rain or cold, but in the dry when it's warm.... Awesome

What wheel size are you running in the front? I may go that route in the future.

I got a nasty vibration in the front at speed. I was watching when the force balanced them and the fronts were spot-on. I guess I will have to go back and have them recheck though....I get some pretty good wheel shake at anything over 60mph or so.

Hey Pete....

OK Tire on Auburn Blvd. They have a force balancer. Ask for John Dacy (Manager) at 331-2751. They give a BMW club discount.

Funny thing is, it USED to be like $8/tire to mount/balance...killer deal!

I went it and it was like $118 for all four this time....they said it was more because the lo-pro tires are a PITA to mount...I watched them and it took two guys to get them on...and it wasn't easy, so I understand the price.

I asked about the discount and he said that WAS the discounted price. I was like f'that, I'll go elsewhere next time.

HOWEVER, although my receipt said $118, when I went online today and checked, my visa was only chaged $68. A $50 discount! lol

So, I don't know if it is $118 or $68, but I ended up paying $68 for some reason.....

When I went back today to get the fronts re-balanced, they were out of balance...now they are perfect. It's the only time I have had an issue with their work. The install guy today (a vet I was told) said the noob did it last week....lol
