The Conti's are likely a cost saver for BMW. The PDC cars all have conti's on them. I asked about it and they said it was a cost issue since they spend over $1M/yr on tires. So they run the Conti's for the most part instead of the Michelins.

Agreed. The pilot cup is an R-Comp with some grooves they call tread to make it DOT legal. The PSS is no where near that.
