I'm hoping that it is repairable because, after two seasons and the best part of 15k miles, there is still 5mm of tread on all four tyres. Who said that winter tyres wear out more quickly?

Don't forget that that's only 1mm before they are due to be changed

On what basis? I used to work in marketing myself ...

I plan to change them when I start to get a noticeable reduction in performance. This may well be at 4mm but until I feel that they aren't doing what I want them to do then I will make use of the current rubber.


I’d go by the tread depth indicator or whatever you call the “blob” in the tyre tread. Don’t know about Michelins but it’s definitely 4mm on our Goodyears.

I could also mention the law in some other countries…

a question relevant to the thread:
What rim size options do I have for winter wheels on an E39 B10 V8s. For summer I have michelin pilot sports fitted to 19" classics but was hoping for winter wheels I could use something a bit smaller, and cheaper.

Does anyone know if 16" or 17" BMW rims will fit safely over the Brembos??
