I own a 2008 328i Sport Wagon w/sport pkg. It has 18,500 miles and I am getting ready for new tires. Since it seems to be hard to find threads dedicated to the Sport Wagon I am looking to start one discussing ride, handling and tire choice. I live in a mild climate area, Wilmington, NC and have narrowed my choice down to two brands. My last car was a Mini Cooper S w/runflats and when it came time for new tires I went with conventional tires and a can of inflate-a-flat. The change was night and day for the better. Better ride and handling and twice the mileage. The Bridgestones that came new with my 328 are not satisfactory for ride or mileage although they do seem to grip pretty good. My choice for new tires are 1. Kumho Ecsta XRP runflats or 2. Michelin AS+SPT conventional. They cost about the same from Tire Rack and I wonder if anyone has some thoughts or suggestions for which of these are the best for 4 season use or other tire in the same price range and criteria. I am surprised that there seems to be a lack of enthusiasm for the Sport Wagon in the CCA community. I love the car as a multi-purpose vehicle and actually thinks it balances out better than the 4 door 328i sedan. I look forward to some responses as it is approaching time for the new tires.
