    Radial Tires SS, Md has been

    recommending TOYO to a lot of their bimmer customers. I just had them put on a set of v/ms and am happy with them so far. [previous yokos,michelins,pirellis,kellys!] Any others with Toyo experience?
    Their supposed to have an amazing z, and z-all season.

    I tried them a couple of years ago on my 7, .....

    ... I didn't like them then, they may have come out with a better tire since then. I asked "Radial Tire" to pull them off and put on a set of Yokohamas and I have been happy since. No problem, no argument, no charge, as they were only a couple of days since the Toyos were installed. I have the highest respect for the folks at Radial Tire and, it shows that they have high regard for their customers too.
    A lot depends on your preferences on how a tire should behave. I like a tire that gives me good "stick" in a variety of conditions and when at limits of traction gives up gently. Reasonable wear life is nice also. I don't hotrod but every once in a while I do explore the limits just so I know where they are and can rely on them if needed.

    tires quoted me a higher price from what i got off the internet.so i went with the latter.Neway Ihaven't done any business w/the folks at radial but i presume they're cool peeps. an allseason set or snow tires is necessary in this brutal weather. the toyo's slipin' allover in the snow.

    Usually when you factor in shipping and having...

    ... some local tire shop put 'em on your wheels, there isn't a whole lot of savings. Plus with a local like RadialTire, if there is a problem, your remedy is local. My $0.02 worth.

    I just went from Yokohama tires to Toyo t1Proxies and love them. The car is tighter and points faster than before. They are on a 94 540i with Auto. Made all the difference in the world. Like a new pair of shoes. - Jt
