Very low tread noise was an added plus.


Be sure and checkout Tirerack.com. It's an excellent source of info on tire test results & reviews.

I bought the pole position tires also. I have about 10k miles so far on them. I have a 530i sport with 18s. Nice ride, good wear, great traction and priced right. I drive hard through turns, and they stick well. I have to admit that a majority of my miles are highway, but they have worn very little. I got the set installed and out the door for around $1000 at discount tire. Hope that helps..
