    Looking for new sport tires

    I have a lowered, stiff 328i vert with 235 40 ZR 17's that are not going to make another month.

    Would like to get opinions on sticky summer tires (only plan to drive in spring to fall as I have a cheap winter only car.) I had a set of Potenza tires on a Z3 I have but think something new may be out by now.

    It does rain a lot around here in the PNW.

    Hankook R-S4 is the tire of choice for the endurance guys because it offers great grip for a long time. If you're on 8.5" or wider wheels go to 245/40-17, 8" or narrower get the 225/45-17 that has the XL load rating going for it.
    For an even longer lasting tire the S007A.

    Hankook or Michelin for a 328i. I personally use michelin and i am very satisfied with them. Any michelin model will work as long as they fit.
