I know what sizes they are but for those that have a 2009 E90 with sports, what tires come with it? Manufacturer, Name, etc....

I looked through the search and the huge PDF with all the info on the 2009 models and can't find an answer other than the sizes and that they are RFTs.

Most likely it will be Bridgestone Potenza RE-090 RFT or something like that. They're rubbish.

The tires will vary. Possibly Bridgestones, Michelins, or Continental. Sport package comes with 18's, not 17's

Depends on model. Only the 335i gets 18", the 328i gets the 17" upgrade. I am not sure about the 335i, but most of the 328i sport I see have the Potenzas.

Not exactly, 328 coupes with SP have 18's. Sedans 17's

My '06 325i sport came with Bridgestone RE-050A RFTs. They rode well for about 3,000 miles, then went downhill fast. The fronts started feathering the edges about then as well. Getting it aligned didn't improve the situation.

I picked up a set of take-off BBS wheels from a newer coupe and those also had the RE-050s. Different size, same experience.

My next tires will be Michelins.

To make matters confusing, there are also some tire upgrades available on the base. My non-ZSP E91 has 17 inch 225/45s all around.

That is what I have on my base suspension vehicle.

Anyway, the Xdrives get low profile all seasons when you opt for ZSP.
