Best Place For Objective Tire Reviews?

I have a 2002 3-series and the tires need replacing soon.
Thanks

You should pick up a December Car & Driver and read their performance tire test. You should look at Yoko Advan, ContiSportContact 2, and Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3, which along with the Michelin were the top 4.
The Yoko was killer on dry-road performance.
They even used a 3-series for their tests!

Personally, I had the CSC2 which came in 2nd in this test, and thought they were just OK. Nothing to write home about really. I thought the Bridgestone S03 which I had before were better, both in wet and in the dry. Of course, they were nowhere near as comfy as the CSC2, but then again, for someone looking for straight-out performance, attributes such as "comfort" are relatively low on the priority list. YMMV.
Cheers,
Pete

Go to http://www.tirerack.com / You will find both objective (TireRack staff) and subjective (actual BMW driver) reviews there. Good luck.

They have user reviews and road tests. Most of the performance tire comparison road tests are done with a 3-series so you can even compare tires from different test groups and get a rough idea of how they stack up.
Just purchased Pirelli P-Zero Neros based on test results, reviews and price.

Just be sure to apply liberal doses of sodium chloride to the reviews from buyers. Who knows why some people have such extremely good or bad luck compared to others. Maybe their car suspension is all whacked out or perhaps they drive like a little old lady? But if you read enough of them you can get a general trend...

I don't know about "best", but tirerack.com does a pretty good job describing the traits of various tires, and the customers get to weigh in with their thoughts on their tire purchase. It's worth the effort to visit ...
