Tire recommendations?

Hey guys,

I have a friend with an 2007 e90 328xi, so I don't know much about the e90s and its tires. Where do you recommend I go for tires and what are the best tires for the price?

Thanks

We can't help much without having more information. Are you looking for summer tires? Winter? All season?

If you're just looking for brand preference, there are lots of threads in this section on this topic. About 6 threads below this one is one called "Hankook, Toyo, or Falken?" Probably a good place to start.

He would prefer all season tires and his wheels are stock.

He will need to decide if he wants RFTs or non RFTs, performance or touring A/S tires, etc..
So I'd recommend he do some research on the Tire Rack website and then purchase either from Tire Rack or (if he doesn't mind driving to MD) Radial Tire Co. in Silver Spring. The latter will give him a nice BMWCCA discount if he's a member.

General G-Max AS-03 seem to be a pretty good bargain and are pretty good for daily driving as well.

Thank for that recommendation, but he would like to get run flats since he doesn't have a spare tire.
