Apparently they're now the OEM tyre on the current M5 -
These are the ones most recommended by our tyre guy. I have MPS2's right now and am very happy with them, these are supposed to be even better
What size did you order for front/rear

I went with standard sizes for 19's, so 245/35ZR19 front, and 265/35ZR19 rear.

A friend has Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08's on his RS4, and after seeing their performance on the track last weekend, I was tempted. But his feedback about their wet weather performance put some doubt in my mind about their day-to-day suitability (and I'll wait to see how well they wear on his car).

You're running road and track tyres, or one set for all tasks?

I'm running one set for all and currently run 245x 35 front 295 x 30 rears and considering going up to bigger sizes again.

PSS' would have to be the pref for a road tyre. AD08s - shorter life, better in the dry but worse in the wet.

OP I'm running 35-36 psi all round (Oem 18 sizing) and have had no issues with road wear. Track is different of course. I was on the impression and correct me if I'm wrong that outside over wear is driven by over inflation?
