In Reply to: Handeling: M3 vs. 325/328is posted by question... on October 05, 1999 at 11:52:53:
I had the W10's on the front of my M3 when I picked it up used.
The tires slid all over the place. They royaly sucked. The backs were also dunlop but a much better tire.
After putting on Yokohama Int. the car sticks to the road.
Buy some decent tires....you wont regret it. Plan on getting the Sports next.
: I have a 93 325is as well as a 95 M3. I have a question concerning the handeling differences. I have 17" wheels on the 325is (the Motorsport lightweights) with dunlop 235/40/17 W10 (dont ask, i know they're cheap). And i have M countours on my M3 with Bridgestone RE71's 225/45/17's in the front and 245/40/17's in the back... anyhow, it feels to me as though the 325is handels a little better than the M3. I just had new shocks put on it (boge), but i was wondering if it didnt have something to do with the tires... But the 325is feels a little better on the road. Neither have ever been wrecked nor had any body damage. Am i just imagining things or is it the tires... (The RE71's are new). The suspension set up is stock on both cars.
: thanks in advance.
