Tyre selection for my 335i
#1
Hi guys, 

hope you all are doing well. 
I bought my e92 with some shitty no name tyres and was wondering(since this is my first BMW) what would be a good tyrr choice.

Not for track use but I do like driving aggressive sometimes so something that will stick but also give average/good mileage.

Thanks in advance.

Michellin Pilot Sport 4 (PS4) - these come in Runflat (ZP = Zero Pressure) or non-Runflat.
I had PS3 ZP on my TT Mk2 and had no issues.
Felt softer than my Bridgeston Potenza RFTs that I had earlier on the same car.

A 2nd option would be Conti Sport Contact 5 - I had this on my F30 320d.
A nice, solid tyre.

check prices here as a guide line.

I just paid R5,280 for PS4S Sad  (265/35/19). Was told tyre prices are up 10-15% across the board. Exchange rate blah blah blah sigh...... This is possibly the best non-semi performance tyre available currently though!

Goodyear Eagle F1 AS3 or AS5 are great all round tyres... they lasted surprisingly long enough with my 335 back in the day...

I have Pirelli P-Zero runflats on my car and I am really happy with them . The grip is great and it is significantly quieter than the Bridgestone RE050's that I had on the car previously.

What mileage can one expect from the Michelin PS4?

Depends how you drive it honestly. My Bridgestones S001 are 65 500km old and have not yet hit the wear indicator. Maybe 1-2 mm from it. Other guys say with the same tyre they only get about 45 000km to 50 000km on them.
I think if you go for the cheapest between the known Michelin, Goodyear, Bridgestone, Continental, Pirelli you'll be more than fine for everyday and spirited driving.

This is why the PS4 is that price, it not only gives you the grip like the softer tyres but it will actually give you a considerable amout of mileage.

I daily my e92 on toyo r888r really impressed with these doubt I will be able to go back to normal tyres as I have become so used to the grip..

I was worried about wet conditions but so far all the wet conditions I was in It was not bad at all no difference than any other tyre I experienced.

But then again my driving style is very mellow hardly drive it hard only on odd race nights etc.

Mileage so far I have done 6k to 8k and I have about 40% life remaining and I can feel they aren't as good as they was.

Ive used the bridgestone runflats and slightest pot hole it gets a bubble this is the 18s 193M wheels with correct size bridgestone runflats.

IMO rather go with non-RFTs if you have a puncture repair kit and your insurance allows, much more comfortable ride, and price wise it will most of the time be cheaper then RFTs.

PS4S for the win hey, otherwise the pirelli p zero is also real good but wears alot quicker as softer compound
