Want to change all four tires for 2011 BMW 328I Sulev, any recommendation?
bought 2 weeks ago, what would be a good brand choice?
- Costco recommended Brightstone which is good but over my budget,
- I drive to school to work every day in L.A.
- I also wonder if I should choose a regular tire or must an RFT tire,
You get what you pay for. So I recommend something that is built for long distance. And if you want an RFT but you have a budget just get good regular tires.
Thank you for the great advice!! I might be wrong and very ignorant, I did a bit research in America's Tire today. I feel the Continental Extreme Contact DWS 06 (225 /45 R17 91W SL BSW) seems good in Tread Grading (560) and Traction Grading(AA), and, the price with promotion seems also competitive around $100.
see the attachment, - I m not sure if I must choose an RFT for my car yet, how much longer they can run and how much more endurance they would be compared with a regular tire..?
RFT is a direct replacement due to your car not having a spare tire, hence the run flats. You can swap to a regular tire, for cost and handling ,but make sure you have roadside assistance like AAA, and or a tire compressor lit in the trunk. The Continental DWS is an awesome tire and I run those on a few of my vehicles. RFT will get you 20-30K miles for wear, regular tires might go to 40K. Hard to say, depends on how you drive
Thank you Tom!! Super helpful!!
