Style 195 on a 335i E92

Recommended Posts

Just put these on and I quite like them. I think they suit the car better than the 189's  that were on from the factory. Got a new set of Potenza RE003's in the OEM 225/40-18 and 255/35-18 sizes and was out for a drive this afternoon to scrub them in a bit :)  New tyres are always better than old tyres but these surprised me by being almost totally silent on hotmix. Other than that they seem to do pretty much what it says on the box. I'll update this post when they have a couple of 1000kms on them.

Cheers...

I think they look good, certainly better on the car than in pictures. The RE003s are a solid choice, not the highest performers but bang for your buck nearly impossible to beat.

Yeah... I could have gone for a higher rating tyre but I'm not a good enough driver to justify $500 a corner.  And getting a good deal on the RE003's made it an easy decision :) I'll be giving them a run at Port Road next weekend and that should give me a better idea of how they perform.

Yes I hear you re the money. I have some Michelin Pilot Sports on my E34 and they are a very nice tire, great feedback and high levels of grip, but I could get Re003's for up to 30% less and the reviews (Sold in the US as a Firestone Firehawk Indy 500) are pretty positive, as is my personal experience. That said I would like to try some Continental Contisportcontact 5Ps but $600 a corner is a lot of coin.
