Tire help please

This will be my 1st set of tires I'm putting on my e92 329xi staggered sport. And I'm getting rid of my run flats... I'm looking for a decent tire without spending a fortune. Any suggestions would help... Thanks

You can just follow the same factory size as the ones your using now.
I would recommend Hankook V12 tires or Micheline PSS tires.

Top value oriented summer performance tires would include the Sumitomo HTRZ3 and Hankook Ventus V12 EVO.

I just got rid of my Conti RFT on Friday and bought Sumitoma HTRZ3 . Wished that I had done it sooner. Smooother ride, better handling and so much less noise.
After reading the "Tire Rack" test of summer max performance tires, I was able to find a set here in Canada even though Sumitoma are not well represented in this country. Too bad!
Wish Tire Rack had a location in Canada as the hassle and duty bringing goods across the border is often not worth the effort.
