Thanks to a limited slip and fancy suspension, our BMW M235i was faster than ever around a track. Handling-wise, though, it was still lacking in one area: tires. Sure, our Continental ExtremeContact DW tires were a good compromise for a mostly street-driven car, but we wanted something even more aggressive. We shod a set of TSW Nurburgring wheels with Continental ContiSportContact 5 P tires, which should hold up well on track while still being comfortable for a daily driver.

How'd the new wheel and tire setup perform? Check out the November issue of GRM to find out.

Those are sticky tires?

I guess everyone should hang up their RE-71R's and Rivals then and switch to a tire that was rated "Gut" by Autobild.

I understand that Continental is paying for these tires, but at least call a spade a spade here and maybe in the process give Continental a nudge that maybe they should develop something a bit more aggressive.

I don't follow going from a square tire setup to staggered. Did the supnension change or future power make the car too loose?
