335D needs new boots

Hi All,

MY 335D (remapped) is going to need some front tyres in the next few weeks and some rear tyres in a month or two.

Currently its fitted with Michelin pilot sport 2 tyres all around. I find them perfectly fine, good grip, road noise is good and so on.

They are a pretty penny mind you. Especially as the rears are 265/30/19.

I do not want to cheap out and will buy what I have to, however I was just wondering what you guys all run? your experience and the price you may have paid.

I have no idea how long these tyres have been on the car, but I have done around 3k with them and they were low when I got it.

I put a full set of Vredestein Ultrac Sesanta on mine quite a few months back and have been very happy with how they've been. Whether they're good enough to deal with the extra power from the remap is another question but on a stock 335D they've been perfectly good.

Michelins and contis are the preferred to end tyres from what ive seen on here. Goodyear asymmetrical 2s also get some mention on here. Ive currently got contis on the front and goodyears on the back

You're always going to get a mix of opinions when you ask that question, depending on peoples experience.

So here's mine. I've had a full set of Vreds (235 / 265) and they were okay, but hopeless for grip under acceleration on cold damp roads. Official wet grip rating is 'C'.
I've now got GY asymmetric 2s, grip rating 'A', and I find them better. Not been through a winter yet though.

Stick with Michelins.... They are the best from what I've had and yes they are pricey but they last a long time. I've seen 25k miles out a set of fronts and 20k miles from rears before on my old 325i M Sport.
