Because most people are still on their OEM tires, I am sure most vote goes to PS2.



But, when my 20in wheel arrives, I will be putting Bridgestone RE050 PP.
I always liked their "stiff" sidewalls.

If you are staying 19" there is not really anything better than the PS2. The INVO is new and cheaper I believe, I have no experience with how it performs vs. the PS2.

Hmm...seems like Sport PS2's are the best tire in 18" or 19" variations for the e92 M3 from what folks are driving out there? Is that because of grip or sidewall stiffness or durability? Cars have been out since March so we're almost coming up on 9 months since their release soon and many folks have "upgraded" their tires/wheels or both so am sounds like Michellin Sport PS2's are the favorite here, no?

i think its mainly cuz the majority of people have not changed their tires and still have the stock tires
does everyone like the Michellins?
i am very unimpressed with them
but its been cold ever since i bought my car
so that might be affecting their grip

Probably so...you're driving with summer tires on instead of winters? How's the weather been back there? Am out of the country and my family tells me there's been snow and cold temps so that could be affecting your grip on your Michellins, maybe?

Bridgestone RE050A PP is a great tire for significantly less money than Michelin PS2s, just a bit less sticky.

no snow
the temp has been in the 60s when i first got the car
to 40s now
but the car slides much more than any of the other cars i've had
i dread to see how much less grip i have when the temps are below freezing before it starts snowing
thinking of getting the Yokohama Advan S4 all seasons

Try the new Pirelli P Zero, not the P Zero Nero.
