new tires, what to get?

stretched setup. right now it's on hankook ventus evo's. for a little more than a new set of those, i can get some bf goodrich kdw2's. I've had the kdw's before, they were fantastic tires. i haven't seen them on too many e46's though, is there any particular reason for that?

The Hankooks are great bang for the buck tires and they stretch nicely. I think that when people are shopping for tires on here though, if they're looking for something performance oriented they just jump to Michelin Pilot Super Sports. I'm sure many would be happy with the BF Goodrich ones though too.

I bought a set of Hankooks a while ago and I really liked them. They offer good grip for the price, and are quiet. The downsides are that the sidewalls are very soft, and when they get pushed to their limit they leave a bit to be desired.
