My '13 E92 ZCP was a January 2013 build - Conti's.
My '11 E93 19's, guess what, Conti's. Like a curse.

'13 E92, ED. Pirellis. I loved them but wanted wider tires. The Pirellis are for sale. Only 600 break-in miles on them.

My previous car came with Continentals, which I did not like at all.

Anyone know why BMW uses so many OE tires? Steady supply? Pricing leverage?

Seems like a hassle to stock 3x the number of tires in order to service the inevitable single-tire replacement.

I'd be interested to hear if BMW is actually supplying the new PSS...
My understanding is that the PS3 is the successor to the PS2. The PSS is a new category.

Could be wrong though, as the PS3 is quoted as an "all season" tire.
