Question I need 18 tires and I'm looking to spend about 150 each. Any recommendations?

I'm a huge fan of yokohama's but I know that for the price I'm looking to spend there may be a better tire. Thanks for the help guys.

Whatever you do, DO NOT get Pirelli p7000s or any other pirelli for that matter except the pzero.

Their tires are extremely loud. When I am driving with the window down, I keep looking to my side because it sounds like a motorcycle is in my blind spot.

I liked the contis and dunlops. Generally, the softer the tire, the less road noise - atleast from my experience. the pirelli has a rating of 320 which is very high. It's like riding on tank treads.

good luck.

no time for cutting corners (pun intended!)

i think you should save up for another two weeks and get yourself s-03's! for less than $25 more per tire, you could have the best. you've already spent how much on your bmw, so you obviously know quality, so why stop there? that's what i am doing, and i am sure i will be better off. you will be too!
