My Ride: 2003 330xi
Question Tires KumhoASX vs BFGood Traction T/A

Looking for good performing all season 17" with excellent treadwear for a 03 330xi that puts on 100+ miles/day on both highway & twisty backcountry paved roads. Any recommendations (experience) with these two tires or any other with treadwear >300?

Is there any problem moving from OEM 205 50 17 to 215 50 17?

The Kumho will have stonger dry handling and cornering, while the BFG will do better in snow, ride a bit softer, and wear a little longer.

Either 205/50R17 or 225/45R17 will fit. 215/50R17 is tall and doesn't always work in every case.
