Need new tires before lease up - go with OEM

Guys

I track my 435 ZHP and am in need of new tires (OEM Michellin PSS) for the summer. Planning on two more track events. Should I just replace with OEM PSS? Would BMW care if I went with a different brand? Thanks

Scott

It should be a BMW approved tire which are noted by a star. So it can be a different brand but must be a BMW approved tire.

BMW return requires 4/32 tread depth so if you're light on the track you might be able to make due... to be honest, i don't see this happening unless it was just an autoX

Obviously tires need to be same OEM size, same spec on speed and load rating, same type of tires on the vehicle, and it came with RFT, then you need to return with RFT.

I always buy used on CG or something.
They need to be 4/32 which is correct but as long as they are RFT I've never had an issue, any brand etc.
