    I just bought a beater e36 325i for rallycross. It needs tires, so what do you recommend?


    Are performance all-seasons better than snows?

    They (all seasons) will probably last longer - and be cheaper for a given size than snows - but I would not say they are "better". Do you plan to remain in Stock?

    We run Firestone WinterForce on our Neon dirt cheap and hold up reasonably well. We do trailer though so it has no road miles if you plan to drive to and from events on them.

    My old honda was consistently more competitive on mismatched all seasons than a set of fresh winterforces. I have no problem buying some Alitmax Artics, but snow and dirt have different needs...

    If you're consistently running hard pack surfaces like in the pic, then all-seasons may work better. If you run loose surface areas, I think a snow like the winterforce will be better.

    depends on where you run and what the surface is, and what class.

    You can sometimes find used rally tires from stage rally teams for pretty cheap. Winterforce or other squared-off snow tires work well on loose and mud.

    ...but aren't mud and snow conflicting environments? Snow tires are designed to pack snow into the thread, so it can grip. Mud tires are designed to fling mud out of thread.

    And don't winterforces have too floppy a sidewall? I wasn't impressed with the set I had.
