This tire is a perfectly usable tire and appears to have many more miles ahead. It has no patches, bubbles, etc. I just measured tread with my calipers to around .200", which is about 6.5/32.

Looking to get $85 pickup or plus shipping.

Thanks,
Rob

It was on the passenger side, but I am unsure of the history before that as I had just purchased the car. I dont believe they are directional so perhaps it couldve been on the driver side at points before. Overall its a nice tire though. Let me know if interested.

Thanks,
Rob

I believe the factory bridgestones run directional, they were probably made special for bmw. But if it was bought at a tire shop it would not be directional. On the side of the factory bridestone there is a spot that says Outside. Please check and let me know. I would be interested. How much shipped to Chicago. and how fast can u get it shipped out. thanks

Outside/ inside markings does not mean the tire is directional.
Directional tires have arrows pointing to the forward direction.
These tires are not directional, you can swap/rotate them side to side

The tire is sold. Thanks dbltakegs3, will get it out today.

E90330is,

Usually a directional tire will have tread patterns that are for the left and right (ie. not symmetrical) which could likely lead to irregular wear patterns and say Inside on the Outside sidewalls not to mention not have the traditional markings/tire sizes/etc. At the end of the day, if no other mechanical deficiencies by doing as such.... it would really just look silly.


But at any rate, these are not directional... so its all a moot point.


Thanks guys,
Rob
