New Tire Question Around Camber

As we all know, the camber on our GT's is extreme (especially on the rear with a sport package). My OEM tires (Goodyears) were trashed after 12,000 miles and I switched to Michelin Pilots (non RFT)....

Another Tire Question...

It looks like it is about time for new shoes on my GT. Since I have the sport package I have larger rear tires and can't rotate them. Is there a decent tire that can be switched from side to side?...

Check the tire sizes. The car your looking at might have larger rears so your current set of snow tires might not help. I have only a few regrets with my 535i GT Sport. The larger rear tires drive...

Why is the FOB so fat?

I'd pay $300 for a smaller FOB. I remember an add (Merc??) talking about packing the FOB electronics in a credit card sized case that you could keep in your wallet. That would be cool.

The 2012s are very guilty too :mad:

If you go with the non-runflats there are lots of threads on choices. I put Michlein Pilot SS on my 535i GT. Massive difference and so far great wear.
