Pilot Sport 3 vs Pilot Sport 4 (thinner)

Hi everyone,

I have had my E46 for about 2 months now and I need to get some new tyres.

I have been reading allot of reviews and have come to the consensus that Michelin are the "best" (the people that have them are happy with them).

My current size is 205/55R16 and I have found PS4. However, I wanted to get a wider tyre, 225/50R16 but the PS4 does not come in this size only the PS3.

What would be better the newer PS4 in the thinner 205 or the older PS3 that is a bit wider at 255?

I'd buy the PS4s in 205/55R16 rather than PS3 225/50R16. I don't think there's much benefit of a little wider tire, probably better to get a more modern tire

Running PS4s in front and PS3s in the rear of my E46, running PSS on all (2) other cars.
