WHich amongst those three?

I had Michelin (PS2) on my E92 and really liked them.
For the F30, I am looking at Michelin Pilot Super Sport, The Conti DW and the Pirelli P Zero.

Any advices, or any other brands I should be be considering?

In my honest opinion, I think Michelins are the best tires out there consistently. That being said, I'm not always willing to pay for them and am a fan of Continentals. I've never had the DW set, but bought two sets of DWS's back to back on my last car.

I think I'm doing DWs this time around. RE760s don't come in the size I need.

I have the Pilot super sports in the stock 19" size and they are amazing. If your trying to save a few bucks get the conti DW's.

Not at the moment, but it's mainly because I am not too familiar with the brand

I had them on my lowered MKV GLI and they were amazing for the price. Ride quality was excellent and road noise was noticeably absent. They wore a little too quickly for my liking, but that is to be expected given they were a max performance summer tire. Their construction process is very similar to Michelins by the way.

I love the V12s but they die quick. The DWs are much better and only slightly more expensive.

That is what I found looking at comparisons and articles on the web.

I have the Hankooks V12 on my car and they are pretty grippy all around. Even in the wet I don't lose traction often. I will report back on wear when I am close to changing them out.

I would do DWs.

The V12s are amazing in the rain though too.

They chunk at the track. They were good initially but now they dont seem to bite. Maybe because my other car has pss on them.
