Which tires do you have on your BMW?

Which tires do you currently have on your cars/sav?

i currently have Conti DWS06, no complaints in snow or any weather conditions.
So im at the point that i have to replace rear tires, fronts are OK. (22k miles)
i do have conti kit thats comes with sealant and air compressor, it works well.

im not sure whether to go back to runflat tires or regular tires.
not many tires are available for 275 40 19, 245 45 19. Majority of tires are summer performances. Storage is limited for winter wheels.

i may go with P7 or MXM4 ZP?

From my personal experience MXM4 ZP are very bad in snow. Stick with Contis. They have never let me down. I've had DWS and DWS06 both are pretty nice all weather tires.

Firestone Firehawk Indy 500
235/35/19
275/30/19

Probably the best budget tires.
They are 85-90% the performance of PSS for half the price.

I had Toyo Proxes 4 plus, shit tire. Went out of round on one, warrantied, and went out of round again.

Finally switched to A/S 3+ this past month after my parents switched to AS3+, phenomenal tire.

Yep AS3+ are pretty awesome. Corvette owners use them too since PSS are also OEM on them. I plan to get AS3+ for my C7 too.

Hankook V12 Evo2, stock sizes. I loved them on my E46, not sure I'd get them again on the E92.

How's the tread wear so far? This was going to be my next set after the runflats go.

Since I track alot and do alot of drags, I've put 20,000km so far and it's down to the wear bar.

Should last you alot more if you don't track often.

Still running the OEM Goodyear Eagle LS RFTs 245/40R19s.

Overall a very lousy tire, extremely hard ride, poor tread wear, and susceptible to rim damage if hitting a pothole. If it wasn't a lease, I'd dump these POS tires immediately.

DWS are a great all weather tire.

They can't cut it on an M however, PSS now, looking to try 4S next replacement.
No winters here!

For the Pacific Northwest seeing how we get all the weather ranges here, I went with Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+

Wimped out and went with the safe option of Michelin Pilot Super Sports:

225/40/18 front
245/35/18 rear

Winter tires are Bridgestone Blizzak WS80:

225/40/18 front and rear

Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+, absolutely love them. They kick the crap out of the OEM Eagles.

That said, I also run dedicated winter tires

Getting ready to replace my Continentals on my back wheels. How long would you expect the A/S 3's to last? I don't think the tread warranty applies to a staggered setup like mine on the 135.
