I have to agree, overrated. I also have the 225/45/17's at all corners. I honestly don't notice any improvement in ride comfort over my OEM continentals. Although maybe it is slightly better... just...

Red is usually not good.
Brakes wouldn't be covered under an extended warranty, only an extended maintenance plan.

Haha! Very good point. Perhaps "drive it like you are taking dad's car for a spin" would be more appropriate. ;-)

I'm not sure why we are commenting on such an old thread. The OP already came back and retracted his previous statement saying that he now likes the steering. But I'll join in. :-)

You just can't beat the look of the OEM wheels in my opinion. Which style depends on your wheel size. If you have the 18" wheels, the BMW style 162 is my personal favorite. Either that or the...

My rear pads had to be replaced at about 22,000 miles (about 3-1/2 years). Fronts still had a long way to go. I thought that was pretty odd.

This is sarcasm right?

The expression "caught like a deer in headlights" (or some variant of that) has been around forever.

I appreciate the input. I guess it would be hard for them to live up to the hype. And of course any new tire is going to feel better than the old tire, so very hard to compare.
