Advice on tire choice?

1251 Views 8 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  jorgeassoc
My favorite tire for M5 is PS2, but it is out of stock in Moscow, and no chances that it will be available in one ore two month, so there for I have to chose from:
1.Bridgestone RE050
2.Yokohama Advan Sport
3.Toyo Proxes T1-R

P.S. The worst tire I had is Conti, and had bad experience with Pirelli (not on M5).

Any comments welcome .

The Bridgestone's are a decent tire with good dry grip, but they are very heavy and round.

Toyo's offer amazing performance for their price, but they do squirm under heavy braking and acceleration (great for acceleration as the tire really grips, but nervous under braking). They also have a very quiet ride and amazing wet weather performance.

I do not have any expeirence with the Yokohama, but they generally make a decent tire that wears out quickly from past experience. Hope this helps.

personally.. I would go with the T1-R
Great tire at a great price.. I had them on my E46 M3... wasn't as good as PS2 but not at all bad... great for wet traction... but you'll have to run a slightly higher pressure to get the same steering response as the PS2.
The advan Sports are good tires, I would go with those out of the three..
Thanks, so I think I will go with T1-R, no words about RE050, as I know it is a standard tire for Enzo.

:biggrinbounce::biggrinbounce::biggrinbounce::biggrinbounce::biggrinbounce:T.C. I'm GLAD they are round.....lol.
I really like Bridgestones, I think the RE050 are the improved replacements for the S03s, which I really liked. Yokos are good, but I found that they wore out too quickly.
I use the Bridgestones on one of my sports cars and I love them. I had S02's, and S03's as well, the RE050 is just the upgraded version.

I've been real happy with them..

Toyo is always a great choice.
