: : : When I first got my bimmer i had michelin pilots but the avs sport aren't bad tires.
: : : My father has them on his 911 porsche and he loves them. The traction is good but he complained that the tires are somewhat harder than the Dunlop SP8000. The michelins and yokohamas are good tires for the autocross track, it really depends on your budget and how much you want to spend.
: : : My preference would be avs sport because the traction is higher, AA traction.
: : : I think michelin has only A traction, not sure.
: : : Word of caution, make sure when you buy tires buy some metal stems also, if you are into autocrossing. The reason why is after couple of autocrosses, the rubber stem starts to break if you dont have the support value, my dad's broke, that's how i know.
