Shopping for New Tires this Spring: What’s Best for Your BMW?

Shopping for New Tires this Spring: What’s Best for Your BMW?Trying to determine the best tires for your BMW may seem like a bit of a challenge. After all, you had winter tires installed the previous fall, and now you know it’s time to look toward the spring and summer driving season.

There are many different types of tires to choose from. One of the most important things to realize, though, is that there are also counterfeit tires.

Avoid secondhand and even cut rate discount tire centers. There are some discount tire centers that are reasonable and offer good quality tires, but if you can’t attest to the actual integrity of the tires or that they are original from the brand name manufacturer, then you should find a more reliable store or service center to purchase your new tires.

As for the tires themselves, focus on quality tread that will last a long time. Even though winter has passed, maintaining traction on the roads will depend on the conditions in which you are driving.

For example, treaded tires will not grab dry pavement the same as bald tires. However, on Toronto area roads. Thinking about narrow or thin tread tires to help add more traction on those try surface conditions may seem reasonable, but you need to consider the power and handling of your BMW in the most difficult conditions.

That would likely be torrential downpour as in heavy rains. When water collects on the roadways it can create hydroplaning conditions. You want tires that will cut through the water to maintain as much surface contact with the road when possible.

Wider treads, deeper treads, and higher quality tires that are rated to last for more kilometers is the best option for your BMW.
