Cause they’re a garbage tire, ask me how I know.

At this price, they’re for returning a lease and not getting charged for new tires. Stock tires are almost always trash.

Those are not bmw OE, never seen one on any BMW

The P7 cinturato pirelli is a common all season tire on bmw

The Pzero summer RFT (not in the link you showed) is a pretty good tire, modified for M8

I just bought Michelin Premier LTX 235/65-18 for $118 each on special from Tirerack.com (price includes road hazard protection and shipping). Normally $200+

Damn, that’s some good pricing. Rarely see the runflats or the LTX for <$200 plus install. Personally I prefer Costco but have also found some good deals at America’s Tire. Avoid chains like Big O and Wheel Works like the plague.

In years past I’ve had some luck calling the main Mavis number to match the TR price (or best online price from another chain) and sometimes throw in something like mounting

This time I didn’t want to risk the $118 Michelins special going away just in case it was a mistake so I quickly pulled the trigger on them.

I’d go beyond and say it’s a good idea to replace before winter if you’re close to or approaching 4/32” tread remaining.

  1. Even if you replace an OE-spec mediocre tire with another equivalent mediocre tire, 10/32 traction is better than 4/32 in the rain and especially in the snow (tests have proved this)

  2. If you get a slightly better tire that’s 2 different facets of improved traction (more tread as mentioned above plus the better compound).
