Tires recieved with new car

I would like to see which brand tires people are getting with their new cars. Please list your BMW model (325, 330) with the tire brand you have on your car. Thanks.

330i w/ SP - Bridgestone Potenza RE050A

I believe in the US this is the only tire that comes on the 330 SP.

Thanks SCA. Took a look at the tires online and they got good ratings at tire rack. How do you like them? Also did anyone get their car with Michelin's.

There ok, my mileage is still low, very low.

I wish the US got the Michelin RF tires as OEM, but we don't.

Thanks for the info guys, I was hoping to see michelins on my 330i coming in in a couple of week. Guess thats probably not going to happen. Still would love to see what others are getting on their cars.

4 months in

I bought my 325 in September and I guess I was unlucky to get Bridgestone Turanzas. Since I can't compare to anything else they seem great. My car currently has the runflat Bridgestone winter tires on them, I will be curious to see how many winters I get out of them.

Don't expect too much mileage on the REO50A runflats....they have a treadwear rating of 140! I'll need new tires just backing out of my driveway! That's RIDICULOUS! :mad:

Last Thursday I told the dealer that if I bought the 323i, then I would also have to go into the tire importing business. The 17" Continental RF's from tiretrends.com are $400Cdn each, but I could get them from tirerack.com at about $170-200US. Still, compared with the performance offered by some of the tires in the recent C&D hi-po tire test - .94g's lateral acceleration with the Goodyears!!! - run-flats just don't seem worth the premium you pay for them. And frankly, I know from experience that I'm much more likely to be in danger of running out of grip in a corner, than I am of getting into trouble from a high-speed blow-out on the highway.

If I could have had the european 2.5L engine, non-flats, and still got 12 cu. ft of trunk, I would not have bought an Acura TSX yesterday.

Here in the UK my 320d came with Continental ContiPremiumContact SSR's
they were absolutely horrible! too hard and much too noisy.
After much complaining they were changed for Bridgestone Turanzas which aren't great but miles better than the Conti's.
