My Ride: 2001 330ci
All-season tire reccomendation for 2001 330ci

I got 205/50ZR17 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus four years ago and they've been great but sadly didn't pass my inspection yesterday.

I could go with those again ($790 on TR with shipping), but was wondering if anyone could provide any other reccomendations...performance and handling are most important for me.

Thanks in advance!

I think Im going to try the General G-Max $130/tire which would be way less than $790

My Ride: '99 Techno Violet M3
I highly recommend the Continental Extreme Contact DWS for all season applications. I've been running them on my 330i through a myriad of different conditions and for an all season they have really impressed me.

They might be a bit much if you never see snow though.
