I have a 2011 E93 M3 with a Dinan stage 2 suspension kit. I went through the OEM Pirelli P-zeros in 6K miles. I replaced those with the Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. The rears are worn through 50% of the tread depth at ~4K miles. The fronts are at about 40% worn. The wear is even across all tires. Dang!!!
OEM tires are known to be softer than replacements. I usually get 15k out of rears (PS2s & Vreds), much more out of fronts. Just took Vreds that refused to wear out because I want to try PSSs, but I highly recommend the Ultrac Sessantas for performance, price and wear.
