What tire is BMW using on the style 401 19s?

I tried searching but had no luck due to short search terms I guess. Does anyone know what type of tire is BMW using on cars with the option style 401 19s?

Thanks.

- Continental Sport Contact 5 SSR
- Pirelli P Zero RSC
- Bridgestone Potenza S001 RFT

I think I read somewhere that they added another one. I got the Conti on my 401's.

Thanks. I'm hoping I end up with the S001s or the Contis.

The bridgestones to me is by far the BEST runlat tire I've ever used. Doesn't even feel like a run flat on these 401's.

I have them on my 401s and I agree.

Very high griplevel, very high precision and not bouncy at all for such a 'sports'tyre(also due to the adaptive suspension I have I guess), but they're a bit noisy sometimes...

Cheers

Same here. I'm impressed with the Bridgestones, especially compared to run flats of a few years ago.

I just ordered 2013 335i xDrive with 19" 401 wheels. The vehicle will be built in South Africa. Does anyone know what tires may come with the vehicle?
