I'm going to be bugging you BMW gods pretty soon: need tires and was wondering where a good 3rd party BMW shop is either here in Walnut or in Hawthorne/Torrance (where the gf lives).

werd.

federals are nice for stretch. I'm running "plus" sizes on my oem rims so instead of 225/245s i'm running 235/255 and the the sidewalls are really mushy. but the rubber is sticky.
