    Tire questions

    I know there are a ton of threads out there about tires. I feel like I have read them all. But just can 't find the info I am looking for.

    I just purchased a 2001 m3 and it has new dunlop direzza z11 tires on it. This thing rides pretty stiff.

    I am assuming it is the tires, as I just put all new koni suspension on it. I am looking for something that is comfortable for the street. I do track, but have seperate slicks, so I just want comfort for the street.

    I have the 19" wheel.

    Thanks to all!

    If you want comfort, get the 18' rims, as you will have more sidewall to absorb the rough ride, and keep the dunlops for track duty, or see if you can just swap them for a full set of 18's.

    I am running the new Michelin Pilot Sport 4s, while they grip better than the Michelin Pilot A/S 3's, my fuel mileage isn't as good.

    My favorites have been the PSS's. Like dworthy said the new PS4's are probably your best bet. Then again I haven't been able to try them yet.
