What Are the Best Tires for BMW?

The major brands supply tires that will fit your BMW to a “t.” Whether you drive a BMW X3 or a 3 Series, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from. As you shop tires, there’s more to consider than just brand. You’ll also want to make sure you set your sights on the right type of tire:

  • All-Season – Tires ideal for warmer months (spring, summer, fall)
  • Cold Weather – Tires with tread patterns designed for traction on ice and snow
  • Performance – Tires made for better precision, responsiveness, and traction
  • Run-Flat – Tires on which you can continue driving after a puncture

Drivers may want multiple sets of tires for different driving scenarios. All these tires are fair game for your BMW.

How to Read Tire Size

When you buy new BMW tires, you’ll want to make sure you have the right tire size. Read the numbers on the sidewalls of your current tires to know what size your BMW will need. We’ll help you decipher the symbols:

P 205 / 50 R 17

The first letter indicates the type of tire. In this case, P tells you that this is a tire for a passenger car. The next number, 205, is the width of the tire from sidewall to sidewall, shown in millimeters. After the slash is a 2-digit number that represents the aspect ratio: In this case, the tire height is 50% of the width.

The next letter describes tire construction. Most modern tires are radial tires, represented by the letter R. The final number is the wheel diameter, which is 17 inches in our example.
