What Tires do you have?

I have the Runflat Bridgestone Potenzas.
They could be better.
Even the salesrep said there are better tires out there.

I thinking about swapping them to regular all season Pilots.

Some e90's comes with Pirelli's, any comments on them?

Shuz...how long have you had your ride? I see ur in NJ
I've had my car for 5 weeks now and I have the Pirelli's on my E90.

They are ok tires IMO though i agree that there are better tires out there....they ride good but you can definitely tell the stiffness of the tire over certain road surfaces.

was also thinking about swapping out to regular non-runflats.

Dunno ..but first i gotta worry about putting on snows soon

Here in the UK I have a 320D SE which has Continental PremiumContact which give a very noisy and rough ride, not a very comfortable car for long distances.

mg031, I'm in the Monmouth area, & U?

Picked up my car about 4 weeks ago.
Check out my other posts, and see if you have the same issues.

These are what I was thinking:
I'm gonna look around a bit.

shuzmaker, I am in the Edison area.

Read some of your other posts and sorry to see that you have / had issues with the car and hope all is remedied soon.

As far as issues of my own...after finally getting used to the car i noticed that i have the shimmy issue that is mentioned in the forum here..but my pressures seem to be right at the values in the door jamb so i'll have to look further into this.
I also have a sort of clicking, ticking sound from the dash which i notice every now and then but i think i hear it more whenever i have the A/C on.

Are you looking to put those All seasons on the stock sport rims??
I am still debating on what i should get.

The e46 325 sport that i had before was horrible in the winter with the stock michelin's but that was expected.

I have exactly the same tyres here is SA, and also just the same opinion. Long journeys are tedious, unlike my previous 2002 E46.

I'm looking around on the rims, too.
Most likely sticking with the replicas.
18's are what I'm thinking of.

The BIG question still lies in how the sensors and all that junk are going to fit in with the RFT's.

I'm bringing it in to Open Road tomorrow AGAIN and we'll see what happens.

Will let you know how it goes.
