Y'all"

I am the original owner of a flawless 2003 E46 330Ci BMW. I do 100% of all work on the vehicle. The car is heavily modified, but tastefully so.

Anyway, I just put a set of 235/35-19 Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires on the car. They replaced a set of Bridgestone RE-11s, which was an outstanding tire. But the Cup tires are in a whole new category! Their dry grip is absolutely incredible! They are surprisingly smooth and supple too, more so than the RE-11s.

Just sayin',

Scott

Looks like the BMW keeps you away from the bars. Like Jay Leno jokes about his garage, the wife knows where I am:)
I may soon be working on something with more of a American flavor

Love these "How great Michelin Tires are" threads. Let the fan boys jump in!

It's the opposite of the "how bad dealers are" threads.

But just as repetitive.

I agree about not having pictures. The car is truly pristine. Even the undercarriage. It's NOT ONCE been driven on a wet road, but I still put it up on jack stands twice a year and HAND WASH the undercarriage with wash mitts (NO pressure washer). You'd be amazed at how showroom perfect it is.

But all my images were Photobucket! And you know what they did.

Love it how you show up to every single one of these threads.

Does it give you pleasure to rain on somebody's parade?

You must be of the school that every company and person should be equally rewarded - no matter how good or bad they are - because it's only fair.

Here's a good one that'll twist your mind CKN. I ordered a compact spare for my wife's BMW (it came with run flats). The BMW company I bought the compact spare from ships an OEM BMW wheel, but they mounted a Chinese made Kenda tire. Visually it even looked suspect! Can't have that. I ordered a German-made Continental compact tire and had it mounted. The Kenda tire made the tire store's junk pile.

Nailed it. Oh no, somebody has something good to say about a Michelin tire, I've gotta come in and drop a fat deuce before the bromance gets out of hand smirk

Nice! My friend is eyeing these tires as replacements for his 2005 e46. His is an imola red 330i ZHP with the 6 speed manual. Such a fun car to drive.

My goodness, talk about repetitive! Some of us are quite reliable, eh?
