Unfortunately, that link only takes us to their store locator, not a specific tire.

I have always used Tire Rack's ratings to find tires with specific features and to read reviews from people who have similar cars and drive the way I do.

That's because it's saved in your browser cookies. Clear your browser cache and then try it. Or...just give us the tire brand and model.

Don't know what to tell ya about the link.

Tire Rack rates that tire with a 7.1 for noise, which is good but not great.

I read tons of reviews but I was really trying to get replies from what folks use on their own e60.

Last time I went by an online review, I had to end up exchanging the tires which was a pain because the tire shop doesn't like you driving on them and then returning them. They cut me some slack after I pressed the issue. I just did not want to go through that again.

I am currently running BFGoodrich G-Force Super Sport AS but no one sells those anymore well at least not at my local shops.

I don't like the online prices because then you have to factor in shipping, mounting and disposal costs on top of that and no tire certificates.

Ok I just saw a review that stated those tires (BFGoodrich G-Force Sport Comp 2 ) exhibit tread growl.

I do not think I want to deal with that. I am gonna pass on those tires unless someone chimes in otherwise. Too bad because I really like BFGoodrich and those tires were at a really good price.

Cooper Zeon rsg-g1 would be a good buy.
Decent reviews on Tire Rack
I have the cs5 ultra touring on my daily and they are quiet.
