New comer...need advice on tires!

Hey everyone,

i am soon to be an owner of a 2010 X6 50I, the car has around 23k miles on it. according to the owner, the tires needs to be changed, and from searching around, i know it will rip my wallet. i need advice of a good brand and the average prices. Bare in mind that i live in the middle east, heat is around 52 degrees in the summer, and humidity these days are hitting 100%. Please advice.

Just thought I would translate for everyone. 56 degrees would be Celsius, and in Fahrenheit that is 125.6 degrees. At that temp, I would forget about the tires and just drive around on the rims. You may also want to consider placing metal sheets over the trunk area and sell freshly baked pizzas to defer the cost of the rim repairs. If you choose to go with tires, I would research what NASA is using for the robotic vehicle taking the pictures on Mars surface.

Look up the Pirelli Scorpion family of tyres on line!! Although, in the Middle East you don't have to worry about ice and snow in the winter so you can use cheaper tyres than we need in Europe and USA!
