Tire Recommendations

It's been a while since I've bought tires....what's a popular tire nowadays?

I'm looking for a budget friendly tire that performs well in the wet/dry. Street use only. Most importantly I want it to be quiet for the life of the tire. I had GoodYears before and they get noisey after a few thousand miles.

TIA!

Top non run flat summer tires are the Michelin Pilot Super Sport. Top all-season non run flat tires would include the Bridgestone Potenza RE970 A/S Pole Position and Continental Extreme Contact DWS.

Hankook Ventus V12 are a popular street tire. Another one that a lot of our customers use on the street would be the Michelin Pilot Super Sports.

Rots of luck, I have dumped the OE Bridgestones at 23K, the P Zero Neros at 24 k all for noise. Car was aligned annually, tires rotated 15 K, etc., Just need to factor in $800 a year for maintenance of the tyres. As we all know the adage "you get what you pay for" and BMW's Free Maintenance is real prof the adage is correct.
