In its August 2017 issue, Car & Driver tested five 245/40R-18 max summer performance tires using a BMW 430i. Here were the rankings: 1. Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S (149 points)-300AAA, $198 2. Continental Extreme Contact Sport (144 points)- 340AAA, $164 3. Pirelli P Zero (125 points)-220AAA, $153 4. Hankook Ventus V12 EVO02 (113 points)-320AAA, $156 5. Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 (103 points)-240AAA, $180* *It still amazes me that Goodyear, an expensive tire, almost always comes in last in tire tests, yet it is the biggest name in motor sport racing.
