Tires with more grip help stopping distance but reduce mpg. Tires with lower rolling resistance increase stopping distance but they do get a few more mpg.

Are there any official stats on M Sport summer tires stopping distance? I've only been able to test drive X Lines and Sport Lines.

I'm wondering how much of an improvement the tires can truly make.

Recent tests of the new 3-series blame the poor stopping distances on the all-season low-rolling resistance tires. Stops from 70 mph were in the 180 foot range rather than previous 155-160 foot range IIRC.

Dropped off my E92coupe for a little service when I found out they had a X1 as a loaner waiting for me. I really like the inside and the fit and finish of the one I am borrowing. I have not really had a chance to go through it yet with a fine tooth comb, but I will. I am getting ready to go for a short night time drive now. The loaner does not have the zenon lights, but I will get an idea of night driving after the response I got earlier in the thread. report back tomorrow.
