You're going to have to replace them at least once, possibly twice, before returning it at lease end.

Take them off now, put on a set of decent non-RFT tires, and reinstall them when the lease is ending. You'll save money in the long run.

I just installed Conti DWS 06 on my car. Bought them at 4wheelonline. So far, I like how they grip on dry and wet roads.

I would definitely do that if I knew I would be replacing the tires before lease end but I don't put very many miles on the car. I've only put 8800 miles on so far and I'm over 1.5 years into the lease and the tires have very little wear on them.

I'm seriously considering buying this car when the lease is up so the first thing I would do is trash the RFTs.

I'm surprised not more people running the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S, which is pretty much better in every way than the old MPSS.

Michelin Primacy MXM4 ZP - SIZE: 225/40R18

IMO they are superior in every way to the Pirelli CINTURATO P7 All Season Run Flats that came with the vehicle.

Recommended on Tire Rack (7.2 vs 5.6)
Better dry Performance (8.7 vs 8.3)
Better wet Performance (8.5 vs 8.2)
Better handling
Better Comfort definitely less road noise (8.1 vs 7.1)\
Higher Speed Rating (149 mph vs 130 mph)
Supposedly better treadwear, won't know til they are worn out (8.1 vs 7.2)

Less expensive $810 set vs $988.

Michelin allows the tires to be patched for minor nail hits where Pirelli makes you purchase a new tire.

As an added benefit they also protect the rims from getting curbed better than the skinny factory Pirelli's as Michelins run wide and have crazy stiff sidewalls in ZP's.

Only down side I see is they weigh in 4 lbs heavier a tire which probably makes our M235i slower,

PSS for summer and X-Ice for Winter.
How is the AS 3+ in the winter? I'm replacing the tires on my E350 4MATIC and wondering what to choose, A/S 3+ or DWS?

SUMMER:
X3 runs the stock Pirelli rubber, it's ok but meh.

Saab Wagon runs Goodyear Eagle Sport, very happy with them and better suited to summer than the DWS i ran last time.

WINTER:
X3: Pirelli sport sottozero, not great IMHO, too sporty and not enough bite.

Saab: Blizzacks. Fucking animal tyres, chew through anything.

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

I'm using these on the i8 and Michelin PSS on the M6. The Firehawks are about 95% as good as the PSS in the i8 application in the dry and about even in the rain. I wouldn't try them on the M6 because I like the stability of the PSS at the speeds the M6 can reach.

Same for me, except 245 up front on my E90 LCI. I rub because of my offset.
