RE: 328i 17" sport 225/45R-17 performance tires (W rated)<p>Jeff, when I went to the dealer yesterday, I looked at both the chrome 323i with 328 Sport tires and the 328i (red) Sport tires.<p>The 323i had Bridgestone Turanza tires and the 328i had Pirrelli's P??? something on it. Sorry, my memory is vague but I do remember the makes of the tires, but not the exact models. And they were W-rated for sure and 225, 45's. <p>See ya,<p>Alex B.<p>

A few years ago, I had to replace the tires on my non-sport E36, so I went to 4 different local dealers to look at tires. I found Michelin, Pirelli, Dunlop and Conti, all mixed seemingly at random.<p>I think what happens is, instead of specifying a specific brand and model of tire, BMW approves several brand/models and, depending on what is stacked up next to the assembly line on any given day, that is what appears on your car. It's probably a matter of which tire company's truck pulls up on a given day. Porsche also seems to approve ranges of tires.<br>: <br>: Anyone know what brand BMW is outfitting the 323i with<br>: the sport package, or does each dealer have some say-so<br>: in the matter?<p>: For that matter, what brand tires are coming on the all <br>: the other configurations?
