BMW E46 320i Tyre Review Highlights

I had these fitted to my bmw 320i (rwd). BIG MISTAKE. In the wet they are by far the worst tyres i have had fitted, on the slightest wet road the car is dynamocs are terrable. The car will over steer and the backend becomes very happy to slide.
I've been driving for 16 years, owned over 8 cars and had more tyres changes than hot dinners and i warn everyone to stay away from these tyres!. I may not be experienced as alot of other drivers out there but i beleive these tyres are death traps. I took mine off way before they were due for replacing as i feared i would end up in a ditch along the A-roads i commute up and down.
Initially the competitive prive drew me to choose them, but never again. Please steer clear if you value your safety and want to keep your car on the road.
These may suit someone who wants a set of drifting tyres, but as road tyres please steer clear, no matter how well proced they are!.
Overall score 0.5/10. To be honest i would not even score them!.

Driving on mostly town for 22000 spirited miles
Slightly noisier than the cheap tyres they replaced. The grip was much better, expecially in the wet, very hard to get the front to break loose in the dry. In most respects an excellant tyre except the tram-lining is dreadful. Sure the E46, with M-Tech suspension giving extra camber, is known to have issues here, but these tyres were unnerving at times. Keeping the pressures high helped but this just made the hard ride from the suspension even worse. Conti Contact 3 a better bet
