Stock Tires on M3

First question...(I don't have my m3 yet), but what are the stock tires on the m3

What is the average mileage people are getting on these tires?

PS2 or Conti3's, wear rate varies on where most of the driving is done, but PS2's seem to last longer.

Stock are PS2s and how long they last depends on how hard you drive em
my first set lasted me a short 8000 km the second set a whole 20000! 3rd set is still running and I just got my first 19" Pirelli PZero Rossos 255 / 275.
My first impression was oh my god what an accuracy, up until about 70 km/h then it was WTF !! Wheres the grip !?!
Well Ill be tracking the car on Saturday and hope to have some positive results as to how the PZs perform but I can honestly say: grip and longativity of the PS2s are very good! Even after 70 rounds on the North loop

The Michelin PS2 are the most common. ContiSportContact 3 does show up sometimes too. Both tires are good, most people prefer the PS2.

Treadwear is usually in the 10-20K mile range, and the rears usually go first.
