Oh thanks for the suggestion. I've already checked tirerack and I'd prefer to buy the tires from a shop/have them mount instead of ordering them from Tirerack/shipped to shop and mount.

I've bought a couple of used sets and so far they've served their purpose and I'm still alive

Yeah, those rft sucks dude.. I'm going back to my oem wheels with those rft for fall/winter. What type of tires are you looking for besides non-rfts.

Edit: Since you're in SJ, stop by SpeedElement. I was just there today getting a price on tires too.

Sorry didn't mean to insult you about the used tires if I sounded that way

I figured since it's my weekend car(my DD is a camry yay) I want to put some grippy tires on them. Either the Dunlop Direzza Star Spec or the Yoko AD-08 since those are less expensive than the RFTs and actually grip better. I know they kind of suck in terms of treadwear but since I know I don't drive that much on weekends it should last me 3 years or more.

Right?! Haha. Hey, I'm trying to gather input from people who rocked or is currently rockin' ST coils. How's the drive? Anyone wished they've gotten coils that allowed dampening? That's my main concern right now because the sport shocks+H&R springs aren't cutting it anymore..

I've never driven any of those tires but you should check out the Wheel&Tire section if you still need help!

I had a company iphone 4 and I'm looking forward to finally getting my own smartphone. Yeah I'm one of the few people who still stuck with only a voice plan and no data plan
Oh yeah I'd get the Iphone 5 since I think the S3's screen just makes the phone too large.

What's an OG lurker?

Well I didn't have a bimmer before so it would foolish for me to show up at the meets...Now that I have one, I'll definitely show up

And yeah I don't post often, more sporadic depending on my schedule so. I know some ppl don't like lurkers very much so

OG = You joined the forum when i first started 2005/2006
Lurker = you just watched and learned without engaging full on in convos.

It's not a negative thing at all.

I'm more of a cosmetic person so I would do the M Tech kit, Phong is more of the Performance junkie so he would do the LSD, Ryan is more of the baller so he just does Both.

I think I still don't know about a lot of things about E90s and BMWs in general and I figured I would learn about things by reading and only ask when I just can't find the answer and I must know. I think I'll post more often now that I have an E90 328i though
