There seem to be just two OEM summer tires that are delivered on M Sports in the US. I've read that the Pirelli Cinturato P7 Run Flat are a bit more inspiring than the low rolling resistance Goodyear Efficient Grip RunOnFlat. Now that A/S tires are an option, any reports on what tire is being provided?

Please comment on your impressions of the OEM tires.

It may be the Goodyears on 18" and Pirelli on 19" wheels.

That's what I thought but some folks are getting Pirellis with 18s.

After reading the F30 forums, consensus seems to rate the RFTs in this order:

1. Bridgestone Potenza S001 RFT
2. Pirelli Cinturato P7 Run Flat
3. Goodyear Efficient Grip RunOnFlat

I wouldn't be surprised if BMW has seen the err of their ways (like with the paddle shift fiasco) and have stopped putting Goodyear's on M Sports, making the Pirellis the default M Sport summer tire. Perhaps we'll even see the Bridgestones soon since they are offered on F30 M Sports.

Hopefully, Tire Rack performs another road test that includes the newer Bridgestones and Goodyears. I have a feeling that Michelin is still king of the hill.

I agree with the Tirerack review. For performance tires, I have always rated the Michelin PS2/3 first, then the Potenza. But BMW have never put PS2 on any of their cars.

dinamo, did you get A/S tires with your M-Sport. What tires were they? Are the wheels still staggered?

Do you mean they've never put them on non M Cars? Because E9x M3's come on PS2's as did the 1M Coupe. I don't think they've put anything on the PSS yet, but perhaps the F10 M5 is? If you were talking about RFT's though, than you're correct, as far as I know.

Nevermind, according to your profile you did not order the M Sport package.

Swapping the Bridgestone RE050A RFTs to Michelin PSS transformed my E90 335i. I will wear out the OEM tires before making a similar decision once my X1 is delivered.

Just got my car last tuesday, sport line with the 18" Pirelli P7s. We have a ton of ice right now on the roads and they are doing just fine, although I can flick the tail out pretty easy if I try. In the bit of fresh snow we had over the weekend it was just fine. I'm actually not sure if I'm going to mount my set of studded Generals.
