Not just LS2 tires, similar issue exists on the Goodyear Eagle RS-A tires. For replacement tires it is either Michelin, continental or Pirelli.

It is an excellent buy. You paid slightly more than the trade in value for the car. My son's virtually identical car with slightly lower mileage fetched an offer of $38.5K from CarMax

I beg to differ with you. My wife's Maxima has a navigation system that puts the BMW to shame. The touch screen is superior to the BMW. It accepts all addresses. The BMW navigation cut me off several...

F10 535i upgrades

The 535i has a twin turbo. When driving it in the sport mode I find that it has all the power I need. If you have the sport package, the sport+ mode is even better.
