jw - that sucks big time.

Wonder what will happen with the new 3er?

Surely thousands if not millions of BMW customers have complained about RFTs? Have the inventors of RFTs got some dodgy pics of BMW and Audi Directors that they will threaten to sell to the media if their the cr4p tyres aren't used? I can't think of any other reason to use them.

IMO the E9* is generally a big improvement over the E46 apart from the RFT tyres. In the case of E39 to E60, I think the ride REALLY suffered from RFTs - my inlaws 535d Touring was utterly hideous riding on them - so they sold it pronto.

/// - if the radius of a 19" tyre is the same as a 17" one then why on earth do they "fill" the arches so much more?
