BMW 318is Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Fulda SportControl given 98% (225-45-17-W)

These tires replace Toyo Proxes T1's on a BMW E36 coupe. Haven't yet tried these tires in wet conditions, but they are simply fantastic.
The entire driving attitude has changed, the car sticks to the road like glue, feedback is good, they are silent in comparison to the Toyo's, and pretty much most other tires I have had in the past. They are comfortable despite the low profile, something which is very new to me, as the Toyo's were rock hard.

I purchased a set of 225/45/17 tyres. I was always been loyal to the more premium brands such as Michelin and Continental. These Radars cost be a fraction of what I will pay for the premium brands. I am driving a BMW 318 E46, and with all honesty these tyres are awesome. They definitely much more superior to the Hankook Ventus V12 (had these previously). I will definitely recomend these tyres. I was sceptical about buying Chinese brands, but they proved me wrong.

Writing about the Continental Premium Contact 5 given 84% (205-60-15-V)
Driving on a combination of roads for 3000 easy going miles
Continental Premium Contact 5 tyres are fitted to my elderly 1998 BMW E36 . I really have no complaints about these tyres, the car previously being fitted with the earlier Contact 2 type. They have excellent handling and most
important exceptional wet grip. On my car they seem to last between twenty to twenty-five thousand miles which is acceptable. Would recommend.

Writing about the Accelera Alpha given 79% (205-50-15-V)
Driving on a combination of roads for 15000 easy going miles
For the budget range of tyres I personally think that the Accelera Alpa tyres are at the top end of the budget selection. They are excellent in the dry and grip very well onto the tarmac. Driving in and around London and on long motorway journeys are not a problem. They are both comfortable and do not make much noise at high speeds. In the wet they are however not as good as they are in the dry but then that's with most tyres. They grip fairly well and are acceptable when driving in wet conditions. They have a great thread design which allows it to grip excellent in dry conditions and as for wet conditions I would put a percentage of 60%.

Great tyre selection for the price and providing you drive sensibly you will most definitely get your moneys worth and more. They will last many miles and provide you with a acceptable driving experience. I have these tyres on both cars being the BMW E46 325I and the classic BMW E30. They work well on both cars. I strongly recommend them to those of you on a budget to get these tyres. I think in due time they will become a Mid Range tyre if they continue to with this level of quality.

Really good tyre in the dry but unpredictable in the wet. Good wear & comfortable for a low profile tyre!
