2009 BMW M3: Sticky Rubber

May 03, 2009

The tires on our 2009 BMW M3 are undeniably sticky; they messed up my driveway a bit this weekend.

That's OK, I'll take it. After all, the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires help this 3,710-lb sedan stop from 60 mph in 105 feet, slither through the slalom at 70.0 mph and orbit the skidpad at 0.90 g.

But will they last 20,000 miles? Highly doubtful, but we intend to find out.

AA traction: Yeah, I second that motion.
