Going to dinner... You see, I don't stretch the tires on my e46 so I actually have sidewall that has a little flex to it. Back end kicked out pretty hard with a friend in the car.

My old BMW didn't always wear CHs. I've gone on "spirited drives" on my E46 with the stock 17s and 18" CSLs on them, with gobs of oil-based tire dressing, and still no problem. Snarky comment feyhl.
