Questions about the velozza zxv summer tires..

Hi everyone , I'm going to buy a set of velozza zxv performance tires for my e90, but I can not find any infos for this brand. Is the brand good.? Coz they are really cheap. $350 for 4. I'm a student, so I couldnt afford expensive tires. Thank you.
If the tires are generally good, I will buy them. Thank you. All do u have any recommend cheap brands for my e90? Thank you. I need 225/40/r18 thank you.

dude, sorry, but you are going to get ripped for posting this.

"cheap tires" are a huge no-no... espeically on a website that is dedicated to "high-end, performance cars"

tires are argubaly the most important part of your car, other than maybe your brakes! tires are what "attaches" your car to the ground.

about everyone will tell you to NOT buy those tires.

if you are a student and dont have a ton of money - which many of us can understand - perhaps buying gently used tires, craigslist, ebay is the way for you.

I wont get into why you shouldnt buy THOSE cheap tires... perhaps someone can post the "ironman" tires.. HAHAHA.

Brand shouldn't matter as long as its a NAME BRAND. get what I'm saying?

Michelin, goodyear, bridgestone, etc are all bigger tire companies with MUCH BETTER tires in general.

Hankook Ventus and Conti DW get good reviews and will not be that much more...

Also.. if you're a poor college student (props for going to college), maybe you should sell your luxury car and buy something a bit more practical, cheaper to insure and cheaper to maintain.

Since the Velozza zxv is an all-season tire, I'd recommend the Continental DWS as a very cost-effective A/S.
