After reading some of the reviews on here I was wondering if I realy had signed my own death warrant! In terms of grip and noting this is from a quick blast for 20 miles the grip levels are phenomenal - the Michelin's still had life left in them although not loads probably 4-5 months but the difference is pretty astonishing. For technical and legal reasons, it is strongly recommended to keep to the approved tyre sizes. The model was Motortrend's Import Car of the Year for 1997 and What Car? It will make your car more stable and about the gas,it depend on many elements. I also have a 320td Compact, which has Michelins, and I found the ride comfort improved slightly after changing from Pirelli P6000's, but I felt there was no need to improve the escellent ride on the 530d After replacing the runflat Dunlops on my 530d with M pakckage and suspension - this was a bliss. These are based on the vehicle's specification in order to meet specific performance, handling, braking, lifespan and fuel consumption criteria. . I changed the two rear tyres in June 2006 after about 23000 miles.
I suppose you get what you pay for, but I don't see these as the under-the-radar performance bargain I was hoping for. Click on a flag to visit our foreign webshops. Cons: - High fuel consumption I compared it with my summer tyres only. I ll wait till I have done about 1000 kms before I comment on them again. Select a tyre size to access the list of available products and compare prices. Early signs on wear is fab, will buy again and certinly recommend? Firstly I'd suggest everyone should use winter tyres in winter in Europe where temperature in winter falls below 7C. Wet grip is very good but I dont drive hard in bad weather but have had no problems on fast motorway roundabouts etc.
I tried 40 on the back and with the tyres I've got it felt a little too skittish. It's been produced in six generations and no fewer than five body styles. Bavaria plays host to the headquarters of the car company and is the largest state in Germany. True they are pricey, but worth it imho. The series uses the company's rear wheel drive technology. As I said earlier this is the second time and both times it has been a inner wall failure. Why not and help other owners pick the right tyre! I have the exact same problem, front drivers side, looses maybe 3 pound a week, I had it checked, they couldn't find anything in half an hour.
The model has been in Car and Driver magazine's annual 10 best list 20 times since 1992-2011. Everyone said thet where crap put lasted me 25000 miles the car has 575nm of torque going to the back wheels so never expected to get that distance out of them!! I have always been a Michelin Pilot Sport fan but we all know that although a great tyre, the cost is a major prohibitive factor. Good feedback and low road noise. There are four different body styles: two-door coupe, two-door convertible, three-door hatchback, five-door hatchback. I do not drive harshly but often accellerate hard now and again. A lot of what people have written could be avoided if they had taken advanced driving tuition, whether they are a sales man travling 20000 miles or a senior Ford technition.
The rear M5 rotors are smaller than the front. I can help you confirm it. Hi sorry for posting this for a 3rd time I was trying to start a new thred and made a couple of mistakes. They expanded factory operations to the United States in the mid-1990s. After the production of aircrafts in Germany was prohibited, the company moved onto manufacturing brakes for other forms of transportation, and then to motorcycle engines.
I bought these new very cheap off ebay. Had two bad experiences with Pirellis so would not touch them ever again. Also keep in mind that the 5-series has a offset of around 22-25 mm so you will need to use some spacers. I think the tyre industry really has moved on in recent years. When the weather was warm they were fantastic. It is honored with the distinction of being the longest running entry on the list.
They last longer and provide cost-effective winter monitoring. Several factors need to be considered: from the type and size of the car you have, to the way you use your vehicle in relation to the daily routes you take. Any less and the car feels wishy washy and not very nice. Noise doesn't seem too bad - was a bit worried based on specs that noise levels would be noticeably up. It's width is bigger than original.
Why not and help other owners pick the right tyre! Tough to get hold of them based on current stock levels but managed to find a set in our local tyre place in Swanley, Kent. So big caveat - this is a 20 mile first impression on a brand new tyre. But they proved me wrong when the weather turned cold and wet. So I changed the way I drove and progressivley leaned on them for grip. At speeds of about 90mph they seem to be very stable. Would definitely recommend and buy again. Its meaning has been deciphered in two different ways.
