Question Best All Season Tires for M3?

I just bought a 1996 BMW M3 recently which came with Yokohama Advan A048 racing tires (the seller meant to race it but never did). The tires probably wont pass inspection and I'm not going to track it (its going to be my daily driver) so I was looking for a good set of all season tires. Any suggestions?

really cant go wrong with Continental DWS. They are very quiet, good dry performance, very good wet performance and actually have decent light snow performance and good longevity. For the price they are hard to beat. There are better summer tires, and better winter tires, but I would say the Conti DWS is the best all around tire. Being in Pennsylvania I would not even consider the DW model tire, get the DWS.

No such thing..

For the nice days: Pilot Sport 2's or better
cheapest place is tirerack. (23k+/mi on a set)

For the bad days..
Eastern Europe Ride kit from BMW
Kuhmo Gravel, or Blizzak's
Dont forget to disconnect sway bars, and install mudflaps.





edit: BS aside.. Michelin & Connie both make great high mileage A/T rubber.
