Hi, I want to fit non star marked tyres to my e92 m3 it is a 2009 car with no warranty’s , is this a problem?
JA: How old are the tires? And have they been a problem in the past?
Customer: About 2 years old, and they are a bit skittish in the wet , and they just need changing.
JA: What year is your Fit?
Customer: Don’t understand the question
JA: Are you fixing your Fit yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: At the moment it is fitted with Michelin PSS and I want to fit PS4S
JA: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No that’s fine thanks


Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I am a fully qualified vehicle technician with over thirty years in the trade.

No that would not be a problem, the Star marked tyres are A BMW mark and a trend that manufactures seem to be following, trade in a secondhand Merc, Porsche or BMW without the branded tyres and they will knock the price down.

But safety wise there are better tyres on the market, and I would be happy with the PS4S tyres you wish to fit.

The Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S tyres are a good choice.

I hope this answers your question but do please feel free to ask any further details by replying to this thread.

Many Thanks
