Hi Rob, I had Michelin Pilots when I first bought the car but for $ A 950 a piece I thought there has to be another solution. So I bought TOYO Proxes 1TR for the rear and later for the front, the tyres performed well, not much noise but the rear only lasted 20K .Yesterday I got talked into a rear set of Uniroyals Rainsport 1 for $ A 260 a unit and they seem fine but of course I do not know how long they last, (longer than Toyos) according to the (mailnly) Toyo dealer.It's time for summer tires. While I would love Michelin Pilot Sport PS2's, I can't justify spending $1600 CDN for the set. Running Michelin Pilot Alpine's that came with car last December. Good winter tire, will set aside until November.
Been doing searches and reading reviews. Possible choices narrowed down, in no particular order:
1. Toyo T1R
2. Nitto NT 555
3. Goodyear F1 All Season (prefer summer tire, but priced well)
4. Dunlop Sport SP 9000 (OEM & nice tread, but not hearing great news)
5. Falken 452
All of my previous BMW's and MB's have only ever had Michelin tires. I don't know much about either Nitto's or Falkens, friends in the BMW and Mustang worlds suggesting these brands. I'd be interested in your reactions and feedback if anyone is running these tires or
any other tires I have not included in my list that I should consider.
