I actually agree with Kilgore on this. With non-sport suspension, the difference is tiny. I actually prefer RFTs for their stiff sidewalls for non-sport. For firmer suspension, RFTs need to go. ...

That's what I am saying. Why did the dealer do the alignment just for putting on the tires in the first place for OP? Did you request for it just for the heck of it?

BMW Says 335 Suspension CANNOT Handle Non-RFT Tires!! Is this true?

I was told that BMW 335 suspension is set up such that it cannot take non-RFT tires EVER because no non-RFT tires can handle 335 suspension.

Is this true?

Is this yet another lie by BMW? ...

The Incompetent Tire Shop

Tire company put in new winter tires and set the pressures to 32 all around.

Is this correct? Shouldn't it be 32 front and 39 rear? Is it supposed to be different for snow tires?
