Best tire choice for M635 CSi

Post by Doc Mach » Thu Sep 14, 2017 4:22 pm

I'm looking for experience and recommendations for new 16" tires for my 1985 M635CSi. She is currently wearing 245/50 ZR16 BFG's. All advice welcome.

Hey Doc, do you know the width and offset of those wheels :-?

Kinda need to know this info as well besides the 16" diameter :-"

And are you looking for "best" brand of tire :shock:

You will already be limited due to the 16" wheel size, manufacturers are all going to these huge wheel/tire packages these days #-o

Thanks for the prompt reply. I believe the wheels to be BMW's offering to replace the metric 390's that came standard on the car. I've got two pictures of them I'll upload.

I've got 3 options at the local tire store -- looking at one other later today. They are:

Cooper: 225/50R 16 ST 92 V CS5 Ultra Touring

Goodyear: Eagle Sport AS 92 V

Michelin: Pilot Sport AS 92Y
