Good tire size?

I've got a 328i and I'm looking for a good tire setup. I suck with tires right now so any help is appreciated. I'm currently running 225's in front and 255's in back.

Hi, I have a 328i, same sizes.
Try Tirerack.com
Assuming you have the sport package and want another summer tire:
I replaced my runflats and have tried Sumitomo HRZ III, very good and not too expensive
and Continental Extreme contact DW (my current tires), about $150 more than the Sumitomos (for 4 tires) but quieter and lighter. Both tires should last longer than the bridgestone runflats and both are significantly lighter than the runflats.
Also, I decided to stick with my oem sizes instead of increasing rim size or tire size. I like the fact that my 17in tires weigh less than their larger rim alternatives.

Hey mlif, ill check those tires when I get home. I don't know much about rims/tires and soon, maybe this summer I hope to get some new rims. Is there an easy way to figure out what size tires will fit your rims?
