RFT for 328i with sport package

Hi all,

i think it's time for me to change OEM Bridgestones(26000 miles) and i found that Discount tires carry RFT Dunlop's. Does anyony have experience with these tires.

What else can you recommend?

i have the same setup as u.
no experience with dunlop RFT, would think it be similar.
tirerack has Pirelli PZero RFT, no review though.
if I had to choose RFT's would stick with Bridge Potenza RE050A II RFT.

have u thought of upgrading to a larger wheel and non RFT?
some Linea Corsea, VMR CSL...

good luck man.

Thank you for reply,

I was wrong, there are no Dunlops RTF's and i may go with Continentals ContiSportContact 2 SSR. Just wanted to try something different.
No plans to upgrade wheels since i am planning to sell this car next year.

Guess what, DiscountTires store installed new Perellis p zero last Wednesday and today while washing car i noticed that instead of metal valves i now have black plastic ones. I don't know why these where changed and does it mean TPMS will not work now?
