Both fantastic choices. The PS2 will out perform the GSD3 in dry traction and slightly better in wet, but has a bit stiffer sidewall and will likely wear a bit faster.

Negative...However, if you order either with me or online and reference 'e46Fanatics/Gary' as your 'previous contact' a portion of the proceeds goes back to the E46Fanatics.com site make the admins happier!

I have Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3's. They are very nice for the most part. I've had them for a year now (about 11,000 miles) and now the rears are badly cupped (making lots of road noise between 15-25mph). They will be replaced within the next week.

Ray you fuker, why don you just listen to me? I told you that the PS2's are better.



BTW: I'm heading to LA again for my freakin wheel deal....so yea.....v1? hehe....I'll call you and let you know. I might take a cruise down at 70-75mph cause when I had the V1 I felt too confident and was driving like 90-110 mph the whole way.....hella gave me bad MPG.

Thanks

Depends on how big of a discount. Remember, for the PS2's I think there is a 50 bucks rebate right now. So if the difference is less than 100 bucks, Just go with the PS2s. If it is more then the goodyears.
