my last set on the same VMR V710's were BF Goodrich G-Force Sports. they were great up until about 10K miles, then they got loud. The Michelin Primacy's are a lot quieter and better ride. grip is about the same, but when I drive 100 miles a day, i'm more interested in quiet and comfort overall. i like that they still stick when i throw them into a corner though!

My Ride: Imola ZHP


H&R sport cup kit installed, only dropper her about an inch, I'm guessing because ZHP's are already lower than normal 330i sports. I also installed the reinforcement plates, so I'm sure that has something to do with it up front...

Some rubbing in the back against the trunk walls. I beat on it some with a rubber mallet and haven't heard it anymore. Planning to spray some under-coating on the areas where it rubbed off and see if the new gets rubbed off or not. If so, I guess I'll have to put some thin spacers on the back...
