time to replace tires

for those who drive a 2010 bmw , lots of us should hit the time to replace tires.
did some research online and on our forum
seems continental DWS is the right choice for me.
the best price i can get online is about 187 for one tire. (i have 245 40r/18)
is this seems a good price?
any better deal i can find?

Most of the online sites will be within a couple bucks including shipping - then you have to pay ~$100 for road force mounting and balancing. I've always used Tire Rack.com and had them shipped directly to one of their recommended installers.

Not necessarily, cars without sports package do not have a staggered setup unless they were ordered with one.

M-sport cars only came with staggered tires. Either someone switched the OEM wheels or the tires on the rear are not the correct ones. The only M-Sport cars that came with square fitment tires are the Xi models, and on those the sport and m-sport package is only an appearance package, none of the other sports pkg components are there.

BTW, I have known car salesmen friends and they have been known to swap wheels from one car to another, especially if they sell a car to a friend or family member that preferred the wheels from another car on the lot.

time to replace tires

I have the m-sport package as well and mine have the same size front & back. If i have the staggered wheels, would the tire fit if they put the wrong tire size?

So should I say the dealer took advantage of me?

Do you have an Xi (all wheel Drive) or not? Rear wheel drive Sport should be staggered, Xi are not
