e30 summer tires

e30 DD

Looking for best bang for the buck summer tires to be mounted on the oem 14" bottle caps (aka not looking to spend much)

taking into consideration of the above, would like get some brands and models.

- lowest recommended profile (car is oem height)
- widest tire width for this rim
- wet & dry
- medium wear

thanks for your help.

There's like no choices. For what you want, 195/65/14 (stock size) Falken ZE-912. If you're willing to give up treadwear goals there's plenty of 195/60/14 semi-track tires available (Dunlop Z1, Falken RT-615K, etc).

finding 14" rubber now days is pretty hard and further won't come that cheap.
Tell me something that everyone doesn't consider. Everyone wants cheap and good. Look at spending about 100+ per tire for a brand name; little under for a knock off. still you're into about 400-500 for a set taxes in. Mich harmony all season is a over all nice tire. don't know the cost.

You go cheaper; probably cost 300.00 although expect hard ride. lack of traction in wet and the compound will probably harden after a couple years.

cheap doesn't come with quality my friend.
