A must to stick to PS2 tyres?

Hi guys. I'm just wondering whether is it advisable to stay with BMW-specific Michelin PS2 tyres on the M3? Same applies with Porsche and their N0 and N1 spec tyres.

I'm thinking of trying out other models (RE-11, Advan AD08) on the M3 but apprehensive to do so as the PS2 were designed in conjunction with BMW specifications.

Any advice?

Yeah if you want to spend more money for mediocre performance, but if not change it up.

I don't really like PS2 tires that much and go with Rcomp for track days

Sorry, but you will void your warranty if you change out the PS2 tires in Singapore.

Lol don't make fun dude - you never know what the Singapore dealers are up to - they are full of shit.

I hate the after service of Performance Motor in Singapore, even after you pay SGD$350,000 = USD$245,000
